The show will see three couples every week guessing the song and artists of pop tracks in an effort to win the £10,000 prize.

Each segment will have popular songs from a variety of pop styles, dating from the sixties to the present day.

“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,” commented Rochelle and Marvin on their new roles.

“We frequently put each other’s knowledge to the test at home, so we cannot wait to see how the contestants get on.”
