Celebrate three years of Union J

It has been three years since boyband Union J were formed on The X Factor.

Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett and Jaymi Hensley originally auditioned together as boyband Triple J, but at the bootcamp stage of the talent show, guitar playing cutie George Shelley was put into the band.

The group now consisted of four members so could no longer call themselves Triple J, after a few conversations the lads decided on the name Union J, and the rest as they say is history.

Since finishing fourth on The X Factor, Union J have gone on to achieve Four UK top 10 singles, two UK top 40 albums, a sell out UK arena tour, released a best selling book and have had a range of merchandise released including dolls.

The four piece band will this year embark on their second headline tour ‘An Audience With Union J’ where they will be answering questions from fans and having meet and greet sessions.

Here we look back on the bands biggest hits as we celebrate three years of Union J.



Union J are currently in the studio recording their third studio album.
