JB Gill: Why I left JLS and how I rediscovered my Christian faith
But, from my perspective, it was us. Hear this interview in full on The Profile podcast Did you ever talk about your faith with the other members of the band? Not really, because at that time it went on the back burner. And not for any particular reason. But I never doubted. All the boys have got ties to Christianity. Life was just busy.

I got to the point where I thought: How did you go from being in a boy band to becoming a farmer? There was an opportunity to buy about ten acres of farmland with my property.
But my mum said: I was about to get married and was thinking about what I wanted to stand for as an individual, and how I wanted to live. One of the things that kept coming back to me, which was really important to me, was resourcefulness. We throw a lot of food away.

I was able to marry that up with what I was doing at the time, and that transition has slowly gone more to the farming, as opposed to the entertainment side of things. Was there surprise from some quarters? And so now, when people do ask me, I say: And that is representing my faith and representing, I guess, the kingdom of God. For a lot people, God is reserved for a day, or for a time, or for a special occasion.
