JLS think Olly Murs is destined for success after signing with Epic. “Olly was someone I kept in contact from when we was on the show,” Marvin Humes told ITN. “We met all the contestants on the show. All through the final weeks I was rooting for him and he came second. We always said he would be an absolute find and it’s great that he’s been signed to Epic and obviously [Simon Cowell’s label] Syco as well. He’s gonna do fine. He’s with a great team and I’m sure he’s really, really excited.”

According to The Sun, JLS have been talking with Durex to launch their own line of condoms to encourage safe sex later this year. “It’s all about staying safe. We all think so,” Aston Merrygold said earlier this year. “My mum sends me down a stash (of condoms) and I dish them out to the lads so none of us have to worry. I’d really be up for doing some kind of campaign about safe sex.” The rubbers will be called Just Love Safe, inspired by the band name.
JLS surprised students at a Kent school by turning their hall into a music venue as part of a Walkers crisps campaign. “They told the students there were some people coming in to talk about grants and government funding,” Ortisé Williams told ITN. “We came in and the whole place went mental.”
