Oritse unfazed by single status

Comment on this story
iol tonigh dec 27 Oritse Williams AFP British R&B/pop artist and JLS member, Oritse Williams.

Oritse Williams is staying single so he doesn't have to buy Christmas presents.

The JLS stud is unfazed about being the only single member of the band and thinks he's at an advantage flying solo this festive season because he won't have to spend money on a girl.

He laughed: “[I'd rather be] single, because then you don't have to buy Christmas presents!”

The smooth crooner also has an unorthodox money-saving technique he reserves for his family and friends.

He said: “I've got all the freebies I've been given during the year ready to wrap and give out!”

When it comes to his own presents, however, he has high hopes and is dreaming of waking up on Christmas morning and finding Jennifer Lopez in his stocking.

Asked which celebrity he'd most like to unwrap, Oritse grinned: “I'm going to go for JLo because of her bottom.”

Married band mate Marvin Humes - who is expecting a baby with The Saturdays singer wife Rochelle - is more confident he will be getting a sexy gift this December.

He said: “I've got someone who might wrap herself up in a bow, who knows!” - Bang Showbiz
