JLS have confirmed they are getting back together.
The boy band - comprised of Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill - have announced they are reforming for a reunion tour, seven years after they split in 2013.
In a video shared on ‘The One Show’ on Wednesday (12.02.20), they said: “Hey we are JLS, and we’re back! We’re back together. We can’t wait to go back on tour at the end of the year. And we’re very excited to be on ‘The One Show’ this Friday, for a very exclusive performance of some of our hits. Looking forward to chatting to you then, and seeing you and our fans on Friday.”
The clip was shared on Twitter, and the boys confirmed the news when they quoted the tweet and added: “We can’t wait to spend our #ValentinesDay with you at @BBCTheOneShow this Friday. See you there (sic)”
A second video shared by the ‘Beat Again’ hitmakers also sees them discuss the possibility of getting back together, as Marvin says he “thinks it’s time” for the group to reunite.
Whilst Aston tells his pals it’s been 10 years since their first headline tour, so it’s only fitting they hit the road again for their new tour, titled ‘Beat Again 2020’.
The caption on the video reads: “IT'S TIME!! Our #BeatAgainTour is coming your way this Nov/Dec. We can't wait to be reunited with you all!
