As they enter the final months of her pregnancy, the young family cannot wait to meet the new addition to the family. "The girls are so excited, they literally don't leave me alone," Rochelle laughed. "I don't get a minute; they are just obsessed. They keep saying: 'What's my baby brother doing now?'

The mum-of-two is a regular guest presenter on This Morning, as well as host of TV game, shows Ninja Warrior and The Hit List (which she fronts with Marvin). She has also created a children’s beauty range and turned her hand to writing children’s fiction.

Meanwhile, Marvin is a popular DJ on Capital Radio and recently reunited with his JLS bandmates to prepare for a comeback tour next year. On top of that, the couple have had the added stress of moving house. But despite their myriad of projects, Rochelle says family will always come first. "My kids are always number one on the list and my family is the priority. If it doesn't fit in with our life, then it doesn't happen," she said.
