The Voice 2014 UK: Marvin Humes would pick Kylie Mingoue as his coach!

Marvin Humes (The Voice UK 2014)

The Voice 2014 host Marvin Humes has said Kylie Minogue is his favourite coach on the show.

The JLS star is the new co-presenter of the BBC One show and admitted that new coach Kylie would be his pick if he was auditioning.

"It's got to be Kylie Minogue, hasn't it really?" Marvin said.

But he was quick to praise the other coaches, gushing: "They're all so different, with different personalities.

"[Kylie's fellow new coach] Ricky Wilson is a great musician and Kyile is the ultimate popstar.

"I think the changes have made it fresher and I think it's going to be the biggest show to date."

The gig is a rather big one for Marvin, who hasn't had any prime time presenting experience, and he admitted to having to learn the ropes during filming.

"It's such a big show and I'm over the moon to be doing it. I couldn't believe I was asked to host the show. It's a dream come true," he said.

Hosting alongside Big Brother's Emma Willis, Marvin explained: "She's wicked: We did have dinner and drinks when we were filming in Manchester, but because the schedule was so tight we couldn't really let our hair down.

"She's such a pro and this is all kind of new to me, so she's been really helpful."

Meanwhile, talking to new! magazine, Marvin confessed to being worried about the live shows later next year.

He said: "I get nervous even when I do the re-recorded stuff, but it's good to have a bit of nerves."

The Voice UK 2014 auditions begin on BBC One next month.
