BBC One will air the first episode of The Hit List tonight (May 25) as Marvin and Rochelle Humes present an all-new music-based quiz show. Ahead of the series premiere, the pair have revealed how their competitive rivalry at home helps for a nail-biting face-off on-screen. Rochelle even told the BBC Marvin’s competitive nature can be “actually embarrassing,” particularly when it comes to their children’s sports day.
Rochelle revealed to the BBC that their combative and competitive digs will be part of what makes The Hit List fans so good.
The former S Club Juniors singer said: “There is a bit of that,
“He has a few pops at me about how many number ones [JLS] had and how many the Saturdays had,”
The Hit List presenter continued: “We’re a married couple, it’s going to happen.”
The pair have presented before on ITV’s This Morning together, but the Hit List is the first music-based show they’ve fronted.
Discussing how this genre of TV appears to have lessened over the years, Rochelle said: “Music on telly was a winner, and it always was, and then it sort of died.
“For me, it’s really lacking, there used to be CD:UK, that’s my kind of telly, so we’re hoping to drop a bit of that back into Saturday nights.
“Music is a big part of life for most people. And putting that on telly is just a perfect marriage.
“I never understand why it’s taken so long to have more music shows today.”
The premise of the show was described in the BBC synopsis of the new series.
The Hit List synopsis reads: “Marvin and Rochelle Humes host an exciting and highly addictive music quiz where contestants must name as many hit songs and artists as possible under intense pressure.”
“Get ready to be shouting at the telly and surprising yourself with how quickly you can recognise some of the world’s biggest hits.”
Each week, contestants have the chance to win £10,000 if their music knowledge holds up to the test.
All six episodes of The Hit List will air on a weekly basis every Saturday from tonight.
The Hit List will be available to live stream on BBC iPlayer at the same time as its television broadcast.
Shortly after, fans can catch up or watch on demand via the same streaming service.
Whether any of the contestants will be able to win the £10,000 prize will be found out when the first episode airs.
The Hit List starts tonight at 7:30pm on BBC One.
