Put the date in your diary… Rochelle and Marvin Humes have confirmed they'll be co-hosting ITV's This Morning this month!

New mum Rochelle announced the exciting news via Twitter today (6 August), saying: "The rumours are true for those of you who are asking! ‪@MarvinHumes and I will be hosting ‪@itvthismorning on Aug 23rd we're very excited!"

So are we! Marvin posted a nearly identical message on his own Twitter.

We reckon Rochelle and JLS hubby Marv will be naturals in front of the camera. Who knows? Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford could have competition!

Reacting to the news today, Eamonn joked: "Well, I think that is a very bad idea - I think Rochelle should sit with me and Marvin should sit with Ruth... I think I should nurse maid Rochelle into this job!"

Ruth then joked: "And I could nurture Marvin and hold his hand!" She then added: "We saw them last week actually and it's going to be great, they are a really lovely couple."

Rochelle has been throwing herself back into work recently after returning from maternity leave. She gave birth to daughter Alaia-Mai on 20 May.

Now she's back full time with The Saturdays and has a jam-packed schedule including a slot at Virgin Media's V Festival later this month.

She's no stranger to presenting TV shows either, after appearing as a panelist on BBC Three's Sweat The Small Stuff right up until her maternity leave began.

Happier than ever: Rochelle and Marvin celebrated their first wedding anniversary last month.

Marvin, meanwhile, is still continuing with his JLS commitments before the band call it quits at the end of the year, and juggling his radio jobs with Capital FM and DJ sets at club nights.

Rumours that Rochelle and Marvin hoped to conquer the TV world emerged in the past week when a source told The Sun they'd had meetings with ITV bosses about joint ventures.

An insider said: "Marvin and Rochelle are seen as the perfect pairing. They're a very good looking couple and have both been very successful. But in the end they are completely down to earth and focused on family life."

Well, we'd certainly tune in every morning if they were on our screens!
