Rochelle and Marvin are now happily married with three super cute offspring. But how did it all begin? Let’s dive a little deeper into their story.
Rochelle’s Early Life and Rising Career
Born in 1989 in London, Rochelle was brought up by her mother and uncle after her parents split when she was three years old. She studied at an all-girls school and pursued her love of performing at Colin’s Performing Arts School.
Rochelle began her TV and singing career around the same time. She was in the famous S Club Juniors and cohosted on a children’s TV show, Smile.

After this, Rochelle progressed onto The Saturdays, achieving a UK Top Hit in 2008.
Once her time in the band had ended, Rochelle presented and still does present on many British TV shows like This Morning, Ninja Warrior, and The Xtra Factor.
Marvin’s Early Life and Multifaceted Career
Born in 1985 in London, Marvin was the middle child of two brothers, brought up by their mother and father.
Marvin has seen himself in many roles, including his early music career in a band called VS, acting in Holby City, and starring in a children’s program about computers.
Most commonly known for being part of the boy band JLS. He has also hosted The Voice UK and now hosts a radio show on Capital Network. Marvin also creates house music with his own label Marvin’s Room.

The power couple has since co-hosted together. Rochelle and Marvin presented on This Morning from 2013 to 2015 which the UK loved!
The pair also presented Children in Need from 2016 to 2019 and started their tv game show called The Hit List, a game show about music knowledge that aired in 2019.
The Beginning of Rochelle and Marvin’s Partnership
The pair initially met when Rochelle was 16 and interviewed Marvin, who was 20, on a TV show; however, their romance didn’t start there.
In 2010, the couple met again at an after-party where both JLS and The Saturdays performed.
Rochelle had gone to the toilet and left her phone and bag on the table. Marvin went on to cheekily call himself from her mobile so his number would be readily there for her!

When interviewed on a TV show, Rochelle said, “It was weird. In a creepy, restraining order way.”
Despite Rochelle’s immediate concerns, she wasn’t too bothered. The pair then got talking since then. Cute, ish?
Their Unique Relationship Story
Although sparks began to fly when they first met, Rochelle’s manager didn’t welcome their initial relationship.
During an interview with Metro, Rochelle said, “We got a talking to from our A&R at our record label. [They] said, ‘You’re really lucky because girls like you, they can relate to you – just don’t date anyone from a boyband.”
Despite Rochelle being warned by her manager not to date anyone from a boy band, as it may harm their reputation, the pair began dating in secret!
It is also said Rochelle wanted to keep the relationship under wraps so as not to upset her former boyfriend…

Eventually, Rochelle and Marvin did go public with their relationship; however, after dating officially for just eight months, they called it quits.
Marvin told Reveal magazine, “We definitely argued. Every couple does. We wouldn’t be normal if we said we didn’t.”
“But we never had blazing rows, just silly things like what to watch on the telly. Shed want to watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians while I’d want to watch the football.”
“Our work schedules meant that we hardly saw each other.”
It was undoubtedly challenging to have a relationship while their schedules were hectic. Luckily, the split didn’t last too long. Just two months later, they had reunited and got back together! Hooray! They even moved in together after just four months.
The Fairytale Wedding and Growing Family
More loved up than ever, Marvin popped the question to Rochelle in 2011 on a Caribbean Island. So, of course, she said yes…
They went on to have a beautiful, intimate wedding in Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. They invited 250 guests, just their friends and family, to share this moment with them.

Rochelle’s bridesmaids were the other members of The Saturdays, and their former band members also performed at the wedding.
No images of this day were posted online until a year later when Marvin congratulated his wife on their anniversary. Cute!
