JLS 'using condoms to woo fellow stars'

It appears the boys from JLS have a new pulling tactic when it comes to getting together with fellow celebrities - and condoms are at the centre of it.

Band member Ortise Williams has revealed he is hoping to woo US rap star Nicki Minaj by sending her five packets of the group's own version of the prophylactic.

The singer revealed he is desperate to get together with the 28-year-old and is hopeful his cheeky ploy will pay dividends.

He told Metro: "I've been waiting for Nicki Minaj to call me. You know what, I'll send her five packets."

Williams admitted he has already tried to contact Minaj through Twitter, telling her that he would love it if the pair could get together the next time the American visits the UK.

JLS - whose members include Williams, JB, Aston Merrygold and Marvin Humes - first shot to fame when they finished second on hit TV show The X Factor.
