London: JLS star Marvin Humes is set to co-host talent show `The Voice` alongside `Big Brother` presenter Emma Willis when the show returns for its third series.

The 28-year-old singer, whose band JLS would be splitting up soon following a farewell tour, recently presented an episode of `This Morning` with his wife Rochelle, reported BBC online.

"I am so excited to be a part of the new series of The Voice. I have always been a big fan of the show and love that musicians are given such a great opportunity to reach such a wide audience," Humes said.

"I am thrilled to be working alongside Emma and be part of a new team on `The Voice`. It`s going to be even bigger and better with this new series. I can`t wait to start," he added.

`The Voice` will return to BBC One in January 2014 with Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am as coaches.
