They're known to have a firm belief in the ethos 'work hard, play hard'.
So it's no surprise that now they have a particularly special reason to celebrate, the JLS lads are going all-out.
Aston Merrygold, Orits Williams, and Jonathan 'JB' Gill arrived in Las Vegas yesterday to kick off an epic stag 'do in honour of Marvin Humes' forthcoming nuptials to Saturdays singer Rochelle Wiseman.
Marvin and co have been spotted relaxing by the pool and posing for light-hearted group shots – and the man of the hour was also handcuffed to a dwarf nicknamed '5 cent' once the group settled into their surroundings.

Once attached, Marvin's companion for the day reportedly told the singer that he was his 'b****' now, to the hilarity of his friends.
5 cent, who often makes appearances at stag parties, has also made his own video impersonating rap star 50 cent.
Marvin's humiliation was further compounded by being made to wear a bikini T-shirt.
The groom-to-be, 27, arrived at his swanky hotel by bus yesterday afternoon, accompanied by nine of his closest friends.

Never one to miss an opportunity for a little comedy, trip mastermind Orits provided the gang with Rochelle masks, which they all wore to remind Marvin of the cause for his celebration.
A source told the Daily Star: 'Orits then made a speech telling Marv to get used to Rochelle's beautiful face being around 24/7 once they're hitched.'
The shenanigans, which are due to last a full eight days, have been orchestrated by the ever-organised Orits.

However, in October 2010, they announced their split, blaming their busy schedules meant they were spending increasing amounts of time apart.
But just three months later, the pair were back in each other’s arm and Marvin proposed to Rochelle, 23, on New Year's Eve on holiday in Antigua.
The Saturdays singer recently paid tribute to her love for fianc by getting a new tattoo of the letters R and M wrapped around each other in swirling script.

And talking of their wedding plans, Marvin told Hello! magazine: 'From the moment I slipped that engagement ring on Rochelle's finger I've felt a tighter bond with her.
'I assume marriage will make that closeness even greater.'
Referring to the romantic proposal and
her 50,000 ring, Rochelle said: '”I kept waking up, gazing at my ring
and thinking “Yes!”.
Getting into the spirit: Already excited about the lure of 24/7 partying, JB tweeted 'Vegas Uh oh…vegas!!J x.'
'After a couple of days Marvin did have to say to me, “Babe, you've got to stop looking at it!” '
While the pair have yet to confirm their actual wedding date, there is some speculation that it could be on the 19th October, after Rochelle tweeted a picture of some wedding cutlery engraved with that date.
While some believe it to be in late summer, the stag 'do is certainly being held rather far in advance, considering tradition dictates it be celebrated the night before the wedding.
