This comes after fans of the now defunct boyband - who split in 2013 - believed a reunion for the Everybody In Love hitmakers was on the cards when #JLS2019 popped up all over the microblogging site.
Eager followers of the quartet - made of of Marvin Humes, Oritsé Williams, Aston Merrygold and JB Gill, believed that the group were set to reform for their 10 year anniversary or to release a Christmas album.
However the source of the widespread excitement - and confusion - was revealed to be the annual leadership event for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scouts - the Juliette Lowe Seminar (JLS).

'We’ve been through so much since we first came together and no one would have dreamed what we achieved could be possible, and of course for it to all end was a massively emotional decision, and it wasn’t one that was taken lightly.
'We've had an incredible career for five years and we want to see it as a celebration that we’ve achieved so much. We wanted to go out on top and not be that act where people are like, "Oh bloody hell, it’s JLS again".'
Marvin -explained the boys faced a series of agonising decisions over the past few months, but decided they were keen to 'go out with a bang'.
He added: 'We started in 2007, the last six years has been all of our wildest dreams come true. We never wanted to overstay our welcome in the industry, Alan.
Since the band ended Marvin has gone into presenting and radio DJ'ing, Aston has appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and launched a solo career and JB runs his own farm.

He was supported by his bandmates throughout the trial and recently revealed he is 'in the studio every day and every night' perfecting a new album about his 'three years of hell'.
The star is ready to put the false allegations behind him as he prepares to release an album he spent the last three years working on.
He told Mirror Online: 'The music that I've made tells quite a story, I've made this music in the hardest time of my life.
'My music's about my life and my experiences over the last few years, so you know, whatever that entails.
'I'm just finishing my album, I'm just in the studio everyday and night.'
The interview comes five months after a jury of eight women and four men took two hours and 17 minutes to clear him of all charges.
His band mate Marvin praised him for enduring the accusations, while Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke and Marvin's wife Rochelle also rallied round Oritsé following his acquittal.
