Marcel – who recently appeared on MTV’s Celebrity Bumps with Rebecca – revealed his 2021 plans on FUBAR Radio on Thursday: ‘Off the back of this show [Celebrity Bumps] there’s going to be, there’s potentially going to be other things spinning off the back of it.
‘So hopefully, the year kind of like picks up and like, frees up towards the end of it more.
‘But I’m really just looking forward to spending as much time with my fiancée and my son as possible. And then hopefully we can go on a holiday.’
He continued: ‘We were meant to be going to Portugal in August, but obviously that’s probably not going to happen, but, to start organising the wedding. So yeah, there’s a lot going on.’

‘Yes, god!’ FUBAR host Stephen Leng responded. ‘Are there any other wedding plans other than that? Or are you thinking about, you might have to postpone it? I mean I don’t know like.’
Marcel responded: ‘Well, I think we’ve always said that that’s what we were going to do.
‘So, I think we may have to postpone it for a little bit, just to make sure we can secure it. Because we know the kind of venue we want, you know what I mean? Portugal is a lovely place to get married.’
Also on Thursday, ITV released their bumper spring schedule, after months of uncertainty regarding whether Love Island would return this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Stephen said to Marcel about the show: ‘There’s been some stuff about Love Island.
‘Apparently, they’re talking about doing it in the UK this year. What do you make of that? Would you be interested in watching that?’
The reality star responded: ‘Do you know what? If they’re going to do Love Island in the UK, I don’t know how they’re going to get people in a bikini because, the weather.
‘Do you know what I mean? It’s not always going to be on your side. Do you know what I’m saying?
‘It’s snowing right now. You know what I mean? Who knows how it will be. But I suppose they could do it like in the rain, people with umbrellas or something like that, I’m not too sure.’
Stephen added: ‘I think an indoor pool would be the only way.’
‘Exactly, they will probably have to do,’ Marcel said. ‘They probably have to be like an indoor kind of, they can put like the big sun lights up, and have sun beds everywhere so that they still get their tans and all that kind of stuff.
‘Hopefully they can do it because I know everyone in the whole entire world is missing Love Island.
‘Like, Love Island is such a massive show over here and abroad. So, I think if they can work it out and they can get a plan, it’ll be great for people to like binge it during this lockdown.’
