JLS have been named the UK's hardest-working band for the second year running.

The former X Factor contestants were headliners at more concerts than any other major British artist in 2012, taking to the stage no fewer than 34 times.

According to Digital Spy, the JLS boys said: "We're delighted to once again be crowned the hardest-working band of the year.

"It means a lot that so many of our fans have had a chance to see us perform live. Thanks again for the support and we look forward to doing more in 2013."

Westlife's farewell tour saw them take second place with 31 gigs, as Steps, Olly Murs and Florence + the Machine rounded out the top five.
