A JLS star has been announced as part of a star-studded line-up at an upcoming festival. 

JB Gill rocketed to fame when he and his boy band JLS came second in the 2008 series of the XFactor, missing out on the title which went to Alexandra Burke. 

The band is set to go on a UK-wide arena tour in the autumn of 2023.

Before this kicks off, however, JB Gill will be heading to Stowmarket for the Primadonna Festival, which is set to run from Friday, July 28th, to Sunday, July 30th at the Food Museum in Stowmarket. 

This year's festival will feature a whole host of celebrities, including Emma Kennedy, Celebrity Masterchef champion, presenter and author; Adele Parks, best-selling thriller author; Andi Osho, actor and comedian who recently starred in the BBC drama Blue Lights; and Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, the romance novel adapted into a film starring Johnny Depp and Judi Dench. 

JB Gill will be presenting his new children's book at the literary festival.
