JLS are giving little away about life after the band splits, saying they're leaving their options open. Speaking to ITV's Daybreak, Aston Merrygold said he had heard rumours he may work together with singer Chris Brown.
But he added nothing had been decided. Aston said it was important to take time out after the band goes its separate ways.
Organisers of Birmingham's annual Gay Pride festival have confirmed that JLS will still perform their 60-minute DJ set at the end of May, despite the group’s announcing they’re splitting up.
Last week, Birmingham Pride organisers announced the event’s biggest ever line-up. Alongside JLS, the 2013 festival will also include live performances from Bananarama, Stooshe, Lucy Spraggan, and a DJ set by Paloma Faith.
Boyband JLS, who announced they are set to split, have tweeted:

The boyband shot to fame in 2008, finishing second to Alexandra Burke on ITV's talent show The X Factor.
Now, after five number one hits and two Brit awards under their belts, they are going their separate ways.
Band member Aston Merrygold, 25, was born and raised in Peterborough.
