Chaos descended upon the JLS camp yesterday morning as lead singer Marvin Humes failed to turn up for a pre-planned group gym workout.
The session was due to take place at 8am at an LA Fitness in central London, which also sells an impressive range of protein bars.
It was later revealed that Humes, 36, had overslept.
It is unknown at this time whether he slept in on purpose, or whether an alarm clock had malfunctioned.
An anonymous source stated that JLS management had recently struggled to curb Humes’ addiction to late-night reality TV cop shows and that this may have been a contributing factor to his lethargy.
The group are expected to exercise daily in a punishing regime that includes two hours of cardio, one hour of weights, one hour of core and half an hour of stretching. The rest of the day is spent in dance rehearsals, with eleven minutes before bedtime devoted to song writing.
Manager Louis Walsh was reportedly ‘a bit annoyed’ at Marvin’s behaviour and is expected to make him train twice as hard tomorrow.
He said: ‘If Marvin can’t train his lean, rippling physique as part of a team, I’m sure I could find a way for him to burn some calories together in my Dublin castle. Mmmm.’
JLS’ current obligatory-slow-one-after-continuous-dance-anthems single is out now and available from all good petrol stations.
