So what does this TV rivalry mean for the pair? Has Marvin replaced the sofa with one of those big red spinning chairs? Has Rochelle turned the dinner table into a judging panel? So many questions!

When we sat down to chat about his rise to solo stardom, we got some insider info from Aston, who sang alongside Marvin in JLS and is still close mates with the couple. He said: "The Humes household is going to be a bit of an X Factor vs The Voice battle.

"I know they like to record themselves on the Sky recorder, so it's lucky you can record two things at once. But saying that, its still going to be tense in that household, because what's going to be watched first?!" A very good point.

And the big question is, what show would Aston choose to tune into? Yep, we made him pick between friends! "As I came from X Factor, loyalties have to lie with that!" Aston told us. "But I can watch both, which means I can sit back, chill and let those two argue that one out."

Speaking about Rochelle's new role, Aston said: "We were literally talking about it last week, because obviously she knew before everyone else that she was in the running. She was saying at the time 'I hope I get it, it would be great!

"I know Melvin as well which is great. Its just so nice that everyone is falling into their paths so amazingly. Rochelle has done loads of presenting so she'll be great. I don't think many people could do the job, but with her and Melvin it will be amazing!"

So Aston not only knows Rochelle and Marvin, but also Melvin, that's one successful friendship group!

Aston's debut solo single 'Get Stupid' is released 24 July.
