Oritsé Williams was "emotional" when JLS broke up.
As a founding member of the 'Beat Again' boyband, the 28-year-old singer found it "difficult" to move on when he, Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold and JB Gill parted ways in 2013, and famously burst into tears when he spoke about it on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man'.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I was emotional, that's all I can really say. You know, being the founding member, being the person who put the group together, it's always going to be more difficult for you than it is because it's your baby ultimately.
"However it's just like going from school to college, from college to university it becomes a time in your life when you have to move on to that next step and we felt like it was that time so now I'm in that next place."
The 'You Make Me Wanna' hitmaker went on to reveal he and his former JLS bandmates still keep in touch and meet up with each other, and have even introduced their children to each other.
He continued: "I talked to Marvin yesterday on the phone and we were at Marvin's the other day and all the boys were there with all of our kids. You know, it's great, and we have a great time and it's really amazing seeing everyone evolve in what they're doing. It's brilliant."
