JLS will be hitting the road this summer with X Factor runner-up Olly Murs.

The chart-topping boyband, who came second in the reality singing competition in 2008, will embark on a tour in June and July, kicking off at Hull KC Stadium on June 10.

"JLS are proud to announce that this summer they will be embarking on a series of tour dates across the UK with fellow Epic Record label mate Olly Murs. The band have been great supporters of Olly since his appearance on X Factor and are delighted to be heading out on the road with him," the group said in a statement.

They will also perform in cities like Norwich, Swansea, Winchester and Swindon, before finishing at Chelmsford's Hylands House on July 9.

JLS - Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan 'JB' Gill and Oritse Williams - have been keeping busy. They recently completed their epic UK arena tour, promoted their latest album Outta This World last November, and launched their new fashion range 2KX with X Factor winner Alexandra Burke.

Their new single Eyes Wide Shut featuring Tinie Tempah is released on February 14.
