The 26-year-old couldn’t hold back the tears as the subject turned to the band’s upcoming farewell arena tour, having to be comforted by band mate Marvin Humes.
Explaining Oritsé’s reaction, band mate JB told Alan that it was tougher for him than the rest of the band as he was the one to initially put them together.
JB said: 'It’s Ortise’s baby effectively, you know. He brought us together."
Marvin continued: “It’s an emotional decision. We’re best friends, we’re brothers, the bond between us is indescribable.
“We’ve been through so much since we first came together and no one would have dreamed what we achieved could be possible.“And of course for it to all end was a massively emotional decision, and it wasn’t one that was taken lightly.”
Marvin also explained that the boys had decided to go out on a high rather than have the public get bored of them.
He said: “We've had an incredible career for five years and we want to see it as a celebration that we’ve achieved so much.
“We wanted to go out on top and not be that act where people are like, 'Oh bloody hell, it’s JLS again'.”
JLS announced their split yesterday after five years together.
