JLS have split. That’s the band, not their condom range.
Tweeters were quick off the mark this morning to make plenty of puns about the connection, with comedian Dara O Briain telling fans: “JLS at their peak had a range of branded condoms. JLS have now split. Use these sentences, create a joke #mocktheweekentranceexam.”
Fans and haters were out in equal measure, spreading their respective upset/joy about the boy band split. Some claimed to be in tears, while others rejoiced at the end of their “bad music”. Much speculation was to be had about JLS signing up for the next series of ITV’s The Big Reunion.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson tweeted in solidarity of JLS, who also shot to fame after appearing on The X Factor: “Wish them all the best of luck in what they go on to do.”
The saddest thing about #JLS splitting up is the potential for 'solo projects'.— Linda Connolly (@dedawh) April 24, 2013
#JLS have split. Rumour has it Aston is already nagging Atomic Kitten to let him be their 4th member at the big reunion— Daniel Bannister (@djbannis) April 24, 2013
So do we have to wait 5 years until 1D split up then? #JLS— Rupert Stroud (@Rupertstroud) April 24, 2013
So… Marvin for fatherhood/Capital FM, Aston a solo album (just one, we're talking Lee Ryan not Robbie), JB moves into TV and Oritsé…? #jls— Jon (@jon_roc) April 24, 2013
#JLS the music might be done - but their condom endorsement will go on yes? The club is alive with the sound of laughter...— Joe Carlin (@minxologist) April 24, 2013
I'm absolutely devastated. I loved jls's............condoms— Real Nathan Worrall (@_NathanWorrall) April 24, 2013
I might just keep my JLS condoms so I can sell them in like 5 years to the insane fans for loads.— Megan...♥ (@MeganEllen_) April 24, 2013
If only the media had been this bothered when the NHS split up, eh? #JLS— Alison B (@akbea) April 24, 2013
