JLS are the latest headliners for a series of gigs in London's Hyde Park.

The group, who announced last month that they would be going their separate ways after a farewell tour later in the year, will share a bill with The Saturdays.

They will play the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park on Sunday 7 July.

The event, which takes place between 5 and 14 July, will also feature The Gruffalo and Horrible Histories stage shows.

Performers lined up for other days during the festival include The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and Sir Elton John.

Bon Jovi, Kaiser Chiefs and Bush open the series of shows on 5 July.

Jennifer Lopez and Lionel Richie were unveiled on Wednesday as headline acts at the finale concert on 14 July.

Rob Hallett from promoter AEG Live said: "I have always wanted to promote a show where you can take your kids and your parents.

"Junior can be enthralled with the Gruffalo and your daughter can scream at JLS while your parents dance around to The Beach Boys."

Tickets go on sale for all the daily shows on 24 May at 9am.
