- JLS, who won the fifth series of The X Factor in 2008, split up in April 2013.
- They've announced they'll be performing a string of shows later this year.
Good news, JLS fans! The boy band just confirmed they will be going on tour later this year - seven years after splitting up. Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold, Oritse Williams and JB Gill will be performing in the UK in November and December, with tickets going on sale next week.
"IT'S TIME!! Our #BeatAgainTour is coming your way this Nov/Dec," they wrote on Twitter. "We can't wait to be reunited with you all!"
The responses were pretty epic, with one fan sharing a throwback picture of her bedroom completely covered in JLS posters, while a second tweeted: "I guess I’ll be at Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London and maybe Brighton."
Rumours of a reunion started to swirl back in November, with a source telling The Sun: "The time is finally right for a comeback, now that everyone has had the chance to try out other things and fulfil some personal goals."

The singers have all stayed close over the years, despite focusing on their own work projects.
"They have the best memories from their JLS days and are champing at the bit to give something back to their fans," the source added.
We most certainly are!!! See you there babe 💛x https://t.co/uIVnX7u2FU— JLS (@JLSOfficial) February 12, 2020
"Details are being finalised, but it’s all looking really hopeful and positive. Currently there are just plans for shows and maybe a few new tracks. But it if it really takes off for them it could fully relaunch the band."
Since splitting in 2013, Marvin has gone on to become a successful radio DJ, Aston has continued working on solo material as well as starring in the West End, while JB is an "established member of the farming community", according to his personal website. Oritse has also been focusing on his own music.
