Idris Elba apologises after making This Morning error about Rochelle Humes’ husband Marvin

·1-min read

Idris Elba apologised to Rochelle Humes on This Morning after making a mistake about her husband, Marvin.

Rochelle, who is often joined by the former JLS star when presenting episodes of the series, was hosting alongside Vernon Kay on Friday (2 September).

The pair welcomed Elba to the studio for a discussion about several projects, including his new films Three Thousand Years of Longing and Beast.

When talk turned to Elba’s DJing career, the Wire actor said: “The next gig’s Ibiza, man. I’m gonna be in Ibiza doing the closing.”

Kay jokingly replied: “Nice – we’re on our way!” to which Rochelle quipped: “We could have done this there.”

Here, Elba awkwardly said of Marvin: “I’ve DJ’d with Martin before, your husband.”

Realising his error, Elba said: “Martin... it’s Marvin,” with Rochelle replying: “Call him Martin, I prefer that! I Iove that, I’m telling him, ‘you just got called Martin!’”

The actor apologised, telling the camera: “No, no, sorry Marv, please.”

While the pair laughed off the error, Kay swiftly brought the subject back to Elba’s DJing career.
