TV hosting couple Rochelle and Marvin Humes are to host a new BBC One show.

The pair will front a new Saturday night music series, provisionally titled Playlisters.

The BBC say the show "promises to be an addictive music quiz that viewers can’t help playing and singing along to.'

Each week, three couples will compete for a chance to win £10,000 and all they have to do is name the song and the artist - simple! Each round will be filled with hit songs from the sixties to today covering every style of pop music.

Presenters Rochelle and Marvin Humes said: “This is our first standalone show together and the fact it’s a format based on our love of music makes it all the more rewarding. We frequently put each other’s knowledge to the test at home, so we cannot wait to see how the contestants get on.”

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC added: “I can’t think of a better way to kick off Saturday nights. Hosted by the deeply competitive Rochelle and Marvin Humes, it’ll have everyone at home shouting out the answers and singing along.”

Jan Younghusband, Head of Commissioning BBC Music commented: ““This is a chance for all music fans to test their knowledge and kick start Saturday nights with the music we love, whilst also reliving some iconic musical moments. BBC Music is delighted to work with Rochelle and Marvin, who will have everyone at home bursting into song, me included!”

Karen Smith, Managing Director of Tuesday’s Child and Executive Producer of Playlisters said: “It's a really fun quiz that will have the whole family playing along. You've already heard all the answers, should be easy right?”

It's the latest hosting gig for the duo, who previously fronted ITV's This Morning together.

Since, Rochelle presented ITV game show Cannonball while Marvin was co-host of The Voice UK before it moved to ITV.
