JLS are to star in a one-off show for ITV1.
The chart-topping British boyband - who shot to fame after coming second on Simon Cowell's talent search show 'The X Factor' in 2008 - will see the group perform their biggest hits in front of a live studio audience.
Entitled 'This is JLS', the show will also give the band - Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan 'JB' Gill and Oritse Williams - the opportunity to show off their funny side in a series of sketches and hidden camera stunts written and co-produced by 'Gavin and Stacey' star James Corden.
JLS said: "We are so excited to be doing a TV special with ITV! We couldn't be happier to have been asked to it because it doesn't happen to just anybody.
"It will be a real celebration of everything that has happened to us in the last two years. It's going to be a great night!"
Unsuspecting fans of the 'Beat Again' hitmakers could also receive a surprise visit from the band as part of the camera stunt section of the show.
Layla Smith, ITV's controller of entertainment, said: "JLS are the hottest boyband of today and such great performers so a whole show dedicated to them will be a huge treat for their fans and of course ITV."
