Marvin Humes breaks marriage rule for I’m A Celebrity as he talks tough farewell
I’m A Celeb: JLS star Marvin Humes lands in Australia
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Marvin Humes appears to be breaking a mutual marriage rule to be on the show.
In an unearthed interview, the singer’s wife Rochelle Humes, 34, revealed they had made a promise not to spend more than a few days apart after becoming parents for the first time in 2013.
The couple met through the showbiz circuit when she was a member of The Saturdays and he was touring with JLS.
During their first few years together, Rochelle admitted they were used to spending time apart with their respective singing careers, until their first daughter Alaia, now 10, was born.
From that moment on, the This Morning presenter said they had vowed to keep duration of jobs to a maximum of a few days apart instead of weeks.
She told The Sun: “We spent the first few years constantly being apart, as we were both working. Marvin might have been in London and I would be in America and vice versa.
“That’s all we knew, and when you’re young, carefree and without any responsibilities it’s completely different.
“But as soon as Alaia was born, we made a vow and said that wouldn’t happen. Now there are no weeks apart – we set a maximum of a few days if necessary.”
Rochelle went on to say they “make the pact work” even if it meant driving home in the early hours.
Seven years on, it appears the pair have made an exception for his jungle stint.
The 38-year-old singer is currently in Australia awaiting to compete on the show alongside nine other brave celebrities.
Before his signing was confirmed, Rochelle was quizzed about him potentially taking part during a segment on This Morning.
The presenter joked: “Oh I know that guy quite well” and added: “Looks like I’ll be doing the school run then.”
She went on to suggest that Marvin was too busy for the show with JLS still being on tour at the time, however the band concluded their 2023 dates that weekend.
Speaking of his wife’s reaction to him signing up, he said: “When I first told Rochelle, she thought I was doing a prank on her. She thought I was nuts and she still can’t believe I’m doing it!”

Taking to his Instagram Story afterwards, he admitted saying goodbye to his wife and children was “so tough”.
On her page, Rochelle insisted she was excited to watch him on the show, but also left sick emojis on his post at the realisation of no contact.
Recalling how the conversation went between them, she spilled: “Marvin said, ‘Babe, how do you feel about me finishing the tour and then going?’
“So he literally had like one day at home and then he literally has just got to Oz so it is crazy, crazy, it’s going to be a whirlwind.
“But I am so excited for him and I just can’t wait to watch it. I have something to watch every night at 9 now, it’s brilliant.”
I’m A Celebrity starts Sunday 19th November at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
