• £1.5 million Drumfork estate, near Blairgowrie, Perthshire up for sale

Gill, one quarter of the boyband made famous by The X Factor, has visited Drumfork estate multiple times to broker a deal on the property, which has been viewed 40 times since being put on the market.

The 25-year-old bolstered his rural credentials by appearing on BBC1 show Countryfile alongside farmer and show regular Adam Henson.

The property, near Blairgowrie, Perthshire, comes with its own salmon fishing and includes outbuildings and a chaffeur’s cottage.

Included in the sale of the estate is Drumfork House, a 135-year-old, 11-bedroom property with five bathrooms and three reception rooms.

Three cottages, the 681-acre Drumfork farm and 55 acres of Perthshire woodland are also part of the 750-acre site.

The estate was put up for sale after the death of its owner last year.

JLS announced their split last year after shooting to fame in 2008 following their appearance on Simon Cowell’s television talent show.
