JLS are making a TV Christmas special this year.
The 'She Makes Me Wanna' hitmakers - made up of Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, J.B. Gill and Oritse Williams - will celebrate four years as a group by singing carols and performing their own hits to 400 of their most dedicated fans.
JLS' 90-minute winter wonderland programme, entitled 'A Very JLS Christmas', will air on Sky 1 in December and be filmed in an enhanced forest setting.
The group will follow in the footsteps of a number of musical acts to have filmed Christmas TV specials including Michael Buble last year, while Bing Crosby - who sang the legendary festive song 'White Christmas' - and Andy Williams also fronted holiday specials.
JLS - who shot to fame when they finished second to Alexandra Burke on 'The X Factor' in 2008 - know all about singing festive tunes after performing a version of 'Last Christmas' during their final of the ITV1 talent show.
What's more, the group's second book, 'Just Between Us: Our Private Diary', went on to be a best-seller in the lead up to Christmas in 2010.
