Girlband singer confirms engagement to chart-topping boyfriend

The Saturdays‘ Rochelle Wiseman and JLS singer Marvin Humes are to marry, the couple have announced.

Wiseman announced the engagement earlier today (December 31) on her Twitter page,, stating she wanted to make the news “official” before “someone else did”.

She also posted a picture of the pair toasting the news with a glass of champagne on the beach in Antigua, where they are currently holidaying.

The couple first began dating in March 2010 before splitting around six months later, blaming work commitments. However, they reunited earlier this year.

JLS have scored five UK Number One singles since becoming runners up to Alexandra Burke in the 2008 series of The X Factor. Meanwhile, British/Irish five-piece The Saturdays have scored ten UK Top 10 hits since forming in 2007.

JLS were beaten to the title of Worst Band at this year’s NME Awards, eventually losing out to the Jonas Brothers. Band member Ortise Williams said although he was “happy” to be voted among the five worst bands operating in music, he believed the band’s charity work should have made them exempt from the category.

Meanwhile, NME‘s video interview with Trash Talk below could make interesting viewing for the boyband – it sees the US punks state they’d like to fight Marvin, Ortise and co.
