JLS's JB shows he's for reel on fishing day
HE’S famous for wearing colour co-ordinated outfits in one of the UK’s most successful boy bands.
But JB Gill, of four-piece JLS, donned the waterproofs for a day of fishing in the Hampshire countryside.
The star tried his hand at fishing for the first time with a group of novice fishermen and women on the Kimbridge Beat of the River Test.
JB, a fan of outdoor pursuits, was keen to try his hand at flyfishing.
He caught a specimen grayling, weighing 2lb, and other fish during the day following expert guidance from fishing clothing firm Orvis.
The company, which has a shop in Stockbridge, held the day ahead of the opening of a flagship store in London.
The popular singer and his bandmates are due to embark on a farewell tour that culminates at the O2 in London on December 22.
It comes as the group announced in April this year that they would be calling it a day, breaking the hearts of fans across the country.
They will release Goodbye – The Greatest Hits on November 18 before their farewell tour.
The four-piece, consisting of Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Oritse Williams and JB, rose to fame after finishing runners-up of the fifth series of The X Factor in 2008.
He has been setting up a deer farm in the Kent countryside and is passionate about promoting healthy eating and the understanding of our food.
A picnic was supplied afterwards by The Bourne Valley Inn in the small village of St Mary Bourne, near Andover.
