JLS star Oritse Williams hospitalised one of the band's minders after he accidentally shot him in the throat with a paintball gun.

The group went head-to-head with their security team in a game of paintball in Manchester during a break from their national tour.

However, they proved they don't just save the hits for the charts (thank you, we're here all week), with Oritse accidentally catching man mountain Gaz Batey in the throat. The bodyguard is now said to be recovering in hospital.

A source told The Sun: "Gaz is 6ft 5in and 18st so he's their biggest asset when it comes to protecting them. He's not hard to miss so he was the biggest target of the day. Oritse is mad about paintball and prides himself on being the best. But there's no way he meant to hit Gaz in the throat. He was devastated when he realised what had happened and he hasn't stopped apologising since."

Oritse recently showed off his new buffed up body on his Twitter page after spending months in the gym to get in shape for their 4th Dimension UK tour. However, he will be flexing his wallet not his muscles when he visits Gaz in hospital after pledging to buy him a present to apologise for the shooting gaffe.
