Speaking to The Sun newspaper, JLS said:
We wanted to finish on a high. Were finishing with an arena tour - our third arena tour - and that is a massive achievement.
The last five or so years have been nothing short of incredible. It has been an incredible journey.
Fans of JLS are in shock over the news that the boyband announced they are to split. They said after 5 number ones it is time to separate.
JLS fans may be upset that their idols split up today but do not worry, there is hope. Here are four bands who broke up but later reformed.
The boyband JLS are to split after six years together. They have said will bow out with a farewell tour and a greatest hits album.
