X Factor stars JLS may launch condom range
Tuesday 09 March 2010
Chart stars JLS could be bringing their fans extra pleasure after holding talks to launch a range of condoms.
The four-piece have been keen advocates of safe sex, giving their views during interviews on the use of protection.
And now the group's management have been in discussion with a condom manufacturer about the possibility of getting into bed together.
A source said: "It's very early days but there have been discussions. Nothing is finalised. It's in the early stages so it may not happen."
The group - Aston Merrygold, Oritse Williams, Marvin Humes and Jonathan Gill - could even make them colour-coded. Each member of the boyband has their own signature colour of red, green, yellow or blue.
A spokesman for the band would not comment on any talks with manufacturer Durex.
If the deal does happen, it will join an array of strange celebrity endorsements and products.
Rock band Kiss launched their own range of coffins, while former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman has his own signature metal detector.
Rap artist 50 Cent has frequently talked about launching his own line of condoms.
