Who says break-ups are sad? JLS pull comedy faces with their fans outside after admitting there's 'nothing left to do'

They’re splitting up because there’s ‘nothing left for them to do,’ but JLS found plenty of time to pull comedy faces with their public on Thursday morning.

The good natured band were making their way out of BBC Breakfast studios on a wet and windy day in Manchester when they were greeted by hoards of predominantly female fans.

Having waited in the cold for a glimpse of Aston, Oritsé, JB and Marvin, the girls were promptly rewarded when the four-piece indulged them with autographs and photos.

Pausing to chat with their fans, the lads couldn’t resist contorting their faces into a string of comedic expressions as they sidled up to them for individual shots.

 

At one point JB appeared to poke his tongue at the iPhone hovering in front of his face before adopting a mock grimace that was duly mimicked by its owner.

His three band-mates also got in on the act, with Oritshe getting into the spirit of the occasion by pulling a string of wacky expressions with a young brunette.

The singer delighted that same fan with a warm embrace, while Marvin surprised one lucky girl by giving her a peck on the cheek as she took a picture.

Meanwhile Aston was doing his best to pull off a gurn in one of numerous photos taken before the band made their way back to a waiting car.

Earlier that morning the former X Factor finalists admitted that continuing the band would only result in ‘regurgitating the same things.’

‘We had a meeting with our lawyer and she said do you’re at the end of your recording term, do you want to sign for another five-years?’ explained JB.

‘We thought about it… we’ve achieved BRIT Awards, MOBO Awards, sell-out arena tours, number one singles, albums, what really is there left for us to do?

He added: ‘At that point we just said if it’s now or never then we’re gonna do our own little things now, or just keep regurgitating the same thing for another five-years.’

The group will perform a string of farewell shows in conjunction with a greatest hits album before disbanding in December.

They'll be back- I bet you- they know they can't compete with the likes of 1D. They are waiting for 1D to fall apart and then JLS will reform, all part of management and PR? Where can I place me bet and make millions in a few years time
