JLS ‘planning huge reunion tour’ six years after split

JLS are planning to reunite for a huge tour six years after their split, according to reports.

Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Oritse Williams split in 2013, but are now thought to be ready to hit the stage once again.

The Beat Again singers, who finished in second place behind Alexandra Burke on The X Factor in 2008, are believed to be in the early stages of planning a reunion tour — and are open to recording new material.

A source told The Sun Online: "The time is finally right for a ­comeback, now that everyone has had the chance to do try out other things and fulfil some ­personal goals.

"They have stayed really good mates and always loved being on stage together. Now feels like the right time.

"They have the best memories from their JLS days and are champing at the bit to give ­something back to their fans.

"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."

Fans of the defunct band took to Twitter to exclaim their excitement at the reports.



One wrote: "OH MY GOD… currently trying not to freak out."

A second added: "Omfg its cant be true am i dreaming [sic]," as a third wrote: "This is exactly what I've been waiting for."

Another said: "I swear if this JLS reunion is [true] I'm gonna cry with excitement like what."
