Whenever that This Is Us advert comes on, I can’t help singing along to the track (Can I just say, thank God they used the chorus, because that’s literally the only bit of the song I know. Does anyone know the full song off by heart?). One Direction are everywhere at the moment, and it was almost no surprise when I read the Send Us Your Txt section in the Metro last Thursday. Someone called ‘Marvin’ had written in with “I wish I was in One Direction. Am I the only one?”
Instantly, I thought, “Eh? Marvin? As in Marvin JLS?”
It seems that somebody else had the same idea, as there was a reply from “Marvin”‘s “bandmates” (or should that be “ex-bandmates”?). Sadly, it seems that the conversation between the “JLS members” concluded yesterday. When I flicked eagerly to the Send Us Your Txt section, I was dismayed to see that there were no replies. It was funny while it lasted, but I do wish it had lasted a bit longer than three days.
