JLS star J.B. Gill is ''really into'' farming.

The 'Makes Me Wanna' singer bought a state of the art John Deere tractor earlier this year and is pleased with the progress he has made transforming his Kent home, in South East England, into a working farm.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I do all the mucking out and I have some chickens. I want to try and get into it.

Bandmate Aston Merrygold added: ''He will be supplying to Tesco and Sainsbury's soon. He's really into it.''

The 25-year-old boy band heartthrob is taking his new role as a farmer very seriously and hopes to make some money from his new obsession.

J.B. - real name Jonathan - said last March: ''[The tractor is] amazing, one of my favourite ever buys.

''The farm is a business investment as well as a hobby. I love the outdoors, it gets me away from the city and the mayhem that comes from being in a band.

''I want pigs, cows, chickens, sheep -- the lot. I'm going to be a proper farmer.''
