JLS’ JB Gill to appear in new farming show on Channel 5

JLS’ JB Gill will be the star of a brand new farming show on Channel 5.


Springtime On The Farm will see the singer, who owns his own farm, living and working alongside three others.

Soap star Kelvin Fletcher, who played Andy Sugden on Emmerdale, Countryfile’s Adam Henson and Springwatch Unsprung host Lindsey Chapman will also appear.

Adam told The Sun newspaper: “As a farmer, it’s great to know the public has a thirst for programmes that look at what we do.

“There’s a real growth in audiences on all channels for fans of the countryside, and this new show promises to be a real celebration of farming at one of the busiest times of the year.”

Meanwhile, there’s bad news for any JLS fans hoping for a reunion any time soon.

The group’s Aston Merrygold has said the four piece have no immediate plans to reunite, despite some rumours of a potential comeback.


The X Factor boy band rose to fame on The X Factor in 2008 where they finished runners up to Alexandra Burke.

The group – made up of Aston, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill – went on to release five albums and enjoyed 5 number one singles.

Despite the success, the boys split up in 2013 and each went their separate ways.

“Everything now is built on reunions, but for us there are no plans,” Aston told OK! Magazine.


Insisting that there were no problems between the guys, Aston continued: “It’s nice that we’re in a space where we see each other all the time because we want to, and not because we have to.

“We’ve put JLS aside of her accord and we can go out for dinner and don’t have to think about work. We’re a real family. We’ve got a WhatsApp group with the wives and us – it’s nice. ”
