JLS have got some great news for their fans - they're extending their gigs to two hours long.

Audiences will get extra value for money on their upcoming tour, when they plan to put on the longer shows.

The group's Marvin Humes told the Daily Star: "We'll do a lot of songs from the previous four albums and new songs from the fifth, so the shows will have to be longer.

"They're usually about 90 minutes but we'll have to make them closer to two hours.

"We're not shy about putting on a good show for people and already we've got ideas about how we're going to make it unique."

The tour is called Evolution after their fourth album and JLS's fifth album will be on sale by the time it starts in November.

Marvin, 28, said: "We're booked in to go to LA and work with Rodney Jerkins again and are looking at some new people too. We'll pool all our energy into new material and already have great stuff."

He also had news for aspiring performers as he will be funding a bursary at his old school, the D&B School Of Performing Arts.

Marvin said: "They taught me everything I know about singing, dancing and acting. It's going to be a free place at the school for three years for one over-16. I'm going to be on the panel picking a winner and I'll be dropping in as a mentor."
