X Factor favourites JLS ‘set to make huge comeback as they reunite for tour’

Our hearts can finally Beat Again!

They announced they were going their separate ways six years ago and now X Factor boyband JLS are reportedly making a comeback.

The band – formed of Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill – shot to fame on series five of The X Factor in 2008, finishing second to Alexandra Burke.

The boys – who were firm friends before finding fame – are still on friendly terms today, so much so that it appears they are about to reunite on stage as part of a huge tour.

In their heyday, JLS has five number one singles and topped the charts with their self-titled debut album.

"Details are being finalised, but it’s all looking positive," said the source. "Currently there are just plans for shows and maybe a few new tracks. But if it really takes off it could fully relaunch the band."

Fans couldn't be happier, with many saying they were "over the moon" and "couldn't wait" for the live shows.

If ever there was an X Factor success story as the ratings dip, then it's most certainly the JLS boys.
