JLS have announced that they have reunited seven years after they split up.

The boy band – Aston Merrygold, Oritse Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill – will hit the road for a string of dates in November and December this year.

A video on their Twitter account shows the singers on the phone with each other discussing a comeback.

“IT’S TIME!!” said the caption.

“Our #BeatAgainTour is coming your way this Nov/Dec.

“We can’t wait to be reunited with you all!”

Part of JLS’ hit song Beat Again then plays.

The lyrics say: “Let’s just get back together, We should’ve never broke up.”

JLS found fame in 2008 when they were contestants on The X Factor.

They were runner-ups but went on to release four albums – JLS, Outta This World, Jukebox and Evolution – before splitting in 2013.

Last year, Williams told how he went through a “horrific” experience when he was accused of rape, which he was cleared of.
