X-Factor success story JLS this week announced that they’ll be splitting later this year. It’s not all bad news for JLS fans though, the band have announced that they’ll be recording a new single and putting together a ‘greatest hits’ album.

A statement from the store read ‘If you have an allergy to peanuts, please do not consume this product and return it to your local store for a full refund’.
