Former JLS member Oritsé Williams charged with rape

Oritse Williams leaves a nightclub in August

The 31-year-old singer from Croydon, London, was arrested on 2 December 2016, the morning after performing at the Gorgeous club in Wolverhampton.

The 31-year-old previously denied the allegations in a statement via his representatives.

They told mirror.co.uk: "Oritse denies the allegations against him".

A spokesman said: "Police have charged two men with sexual offences following an allegation of rape at a Wolverhampton hotel in December 2016. The matter is in the hands of the police and it would be totally wrong for us to comment any further".

Jamien Nagadhana, 31, has also been charged with sexual assault in connection with the alleged attack.

JLS came to fame on the 2008 series of The X-Factor, where Oritse Williams, along with bandmates Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, and JB Gill, came runner-up to victor Alexandra Burke.

Williams found fame on television talent show the X Factor in 2008, but has pursued a solo career since pop/R&B boyband JLS broke up in 2013.

Both will appear at Walsall and Aldridge Magistrates Court on 11 October.
