A Very Jls Christmas
Ninety-minute festive special hosted by the titular boyband. Likely to be watched by equal parts enthralled acolytes and alcoholically insulated parents wistfully anticipating their pre-teen offspring's imminent arrival in adolescence, when they will self-righteously disown such childish things as talent-show pop. Jls invite viewers into their own Winter Wonderland, where they will perform a special Yuletide show, and submit to exclusive backstage interviews, as if the world was presently plagued by a shortage of information about the 2008 X Factor runners-up.
