This is news about 1/5 of The Saturdays, Rochelle Humes


Rochelle to host ITV’s Xtra Factor

RochXtraFactor

It’s Official! Our very own Rochelle has been picked to present the ITV2 X-Factor spin-off show the Xtra Factor!

Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes is the new host of The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, where she has been partnered with Kiss FM DJ Melvin Odoom.

The pair will be taking over slots once held by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, who have been promoted to hosts of the main ITV talent show.

This year’s X Factor will see wholesale changes, with Louis Walsh, Mel B and Dermot O’Leary departing.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are the only faces returning.

The judging panel will be completed by newcomers Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, who was poached from BBC One’s The Voice.

Coincidentally, Humes’ husband is former JLS singer Marvin Humes, who hosts the BBC’s rival talent show.

The couple are regular stand-in presenters together on ITV’s This Morning, while Rochelle also fronted ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK.

Odoom has worked on Kiss FM’s breakfast show, alongside co-host Rickie Haywood-Williams, as well as presenting The Brit Awards for ITV2.

The Xtra Factor is a companion show to the main weekend broadcasts, and follows the backstage action, as well as chatting with judges and contestants.

Humes said: “I have watched The Xtra Factor for years so I am beyond excited about joining such a brilliant team and getting to work with my old friend Melvin makes it even better.

“I also can’t wait to meet the contestants and be a part of their X Factor experience.”


Wrigley’s Extra – National Smile Month

Photobooth_finalRochelle and Marvin Humes have teamed up with Wrigley’s Extra and are the faces of this year’s National Smile Month. As a result, we have lots of images of the loved-up couple, showing off their pearly whites and cheekiest grins.

To mark National Smile Month (18th May – 18th June), the couple have revealed the secrets behind their winning grins; from how to recreate their red carpet smiles, to what gives them their happiest smiles  – time with their daughter, and for Rochelle, a home-cooked fry-up.

Marvin admits he has an unusual technique to achieve his dazzling photo ready smile, explaining: “If Rochelle and I are on the red carpet together having photos taken, she always gets annoyed because I have a habit of doing a little laugh in her ear to make me have a more natural smile.”

Rochelle adds: “It is so annoying! When I first noticed it I just thought he was laughing at me all the time and it gave me a real complex! I had to tell him to stop laughing at me – but it turns out it is just what he does to make his smile look natural.”

For stunning Rochelle it’s as simple as tilting her head and lifting up her chin when smiling.

I have more pictures from this shoot and will be adding them shortly 🙂 Photobooth 4

Rochelle stuns at the NTAs and more!

Hi TeamSats! Hope all is well 🙂

As we all saw coming (with the removal of the mailers and flips) the start of 2015 hasn’t been the most exciting for the group. What the actual future holds for the group is anyone’s guess right now, answers to us @TheSatsCoUk if you know anything – we sure don’t!

Either way the girls continue prepping their own solo projects, Mollie recently completed her photoshoot for the upcoming Spring/Summer range for Oasis. Rochelle continues her own range for Very plus appeared at the NTAs last night, looking stunning in her custom dress (see below!), obviously Una is on The Voice of Ireland – and expecting a little boy in a matter of weeks! Plus obviously Frankie is expecting and Vanessa is also prepping something it seems.

I just hope that you all understand that I’m not going to post news for the sake of news, the lesser news updates you can keep up-to-date by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

Hopefully something will happen sooner rather than later, we are all crossing everything!

Una on Reebok, Rochelle on AOL

Our Rochelle and Tess Daly will host a new show about motherhood for AOL UK. Being Mum will see the duo meeting either a celebrity or a mother with a surprising story to discuss what being a mum is really like.

“Both Tess and I are really excited to present Being Mum,” Humes said. “As busy mothers ourselves, we understand what it takes to be a mum whilst balancing successful careers, friendships and relationships. And in our series, we’ll go behind the scenes with a range of incredible mothers, with some faces you know and some you won’t, but all with amazing stories to tell about being a modern day mother.”

The shows are expected to air on AOL next year.

Una has been talking about her role on The Voice of Ireland and a rivalry with Rachel Stevens

“I don’t think we’ll come to blows. I come from The Saturdays where we’re more like sisters and I already feel a bond like that starting to form with Rachel. We’re all about girl power,” Una told The Herald.

“I think we both got really into it from really early doors and the first guy who auditioned was brilliant and so it got off to a great start and didn’t really fall from there,” she said.

Una is currently pregnant with her second child but insists it won’t get in the way of the show.

“I’m in a really good stage of pregnancy at the moment, I’ve got lots of energy,” she said. “I’m used to long days and the show is filmed in stints as well. There’s the blind auditions and then there’s nothing again until November and then there’s actually nothing until after the baby is born.

“They get a lot of content in these few days, the blind auditions and the battles and we go away for a few days as well. Plus I’m used to working long hours.”

The Daily Mail also have an article on how Una is staying fit during her second pregnancy. I’ve added the pictures below but you can read the entire article on their site.

Rochelle back on This Morning

Hi all, firstly so sorry for the lack of updates recently. It’s end of the school year at work – and I don’t finish until next Wednesday – it’s insanely busy I’m doing so much so sadly the site has had to suffer a bit. Sorry for the lack of updates, normal service should resume shortly.

Just to compliment the news about the site, as you are aware Rochelle and Marvin are back on This Morning hosting duties this summer, starting from today, and every Friday!
