Dad-to-be Marvin Humes has revealed he can't wait to spend Christmas with wife Rochelle Wiseman.
The JLS heartthrob and Saturdays singer - who recently announced they are expecting their first baby together - have had a hectic year, with Rochelle and her band busy shooting a documentary in the US.
Marvin said: "For us it's so great that we get to spend that time together, we're both so busy all year, especially the last three months, Rochelle's been in America shooting her TV show so we haven't had a lot of time together. So now we're looking forward to Christmas.
"It makes you appreciate the time you spend together when you're apart so much. At Christmas your phones aren't ringing, no emails are going off so you can just really relax."
The pair are planning to spend Christmas in the UK - with Marvin's dad in charge of cooking - before jetting off somewhere exotic for the New Year.
"It's kind of weird, when you've been been apart for so long and you come back together, it's like fresh. It's great," Marvin added.
"If we could have it our own way then we'd be together all the time, but because of our jobs we're apart a lot. But we make it work. We go on date nights, to the theatre, cinema, restaurants."
