JLS star Oritse Williams has hinted the band will perform a Beatles tribute at this year's Mobo awards.

The group - who are nominated for the Best Video award for the video to their latest single Do You Feel What I Feel? - are performing live at the ceremony in Liverpool next month.

Oritse said: "I'm not going to give anything away but put it this way - The Beatles are back!"

JLS - Oritse and bandmates Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Aston Merrygold - have already won four Mobos, including Best Newcomer in 2009, when Oritse got so excited he broke his chair, and had to pay the organisers for the damage.

He revealed: "I remember the moment I jumped on my chair and went half way across the room and nearly hit two people in the head by accident! Which I apologised for, and I also had to pay for the chair!

"I was just so over the moon. Being the founding member of the band, it was like everything, the dream that I had in my head, started to be realised, and people believed in us."

Oritse also revealed JB has a pimped up awards shelf in his home.

He laughed: "JB's got his mounted on a glass lit-up shelf which is amazing."

:: JLS will be performing at this year's Mobo awards at Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday November 3. For further information go to
