The JLS heart will beat again as they today announce details of a huge UK and Ireland tour, the ‘EVERYBODY SAY JLS: The Hits Tour’. JLS commented, “We couldn’t be more excited to announce another UK and Ireland arena tour! Last time out was totally surreal and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the right time to do it all over again. With another five Top 10 hits to their credit, JLS also impacted the album charts with their self-titled #1 debut and three more Top 3 records before saying goodbye with their 2013 ‘Greatest Hits’ album. In February 2020 they announced details of their ‘Beat Again’ reunion tour, which was quickly extended and then completed in November 2021 after the world reopened post-lockdown.

Coop £3.99In terms of appearance, the Coop mulled wine was my favourite by miles.3 months ago Essex Live
