JLS star JB Gill has broken his silence about the horrifying raid on his family home that took place on his £1.5million ranch.
The singer has been trying to live “one day at a time” following the horrific 3am attack in November 2020.
Jonathan Benjamin Gill, known as JB, 35, was pepper sprayed in the face by robbers while his wife, Chloe Tangney, 33, was threatened with a knife at their Kent home.
Four thugs ambushed the family in the middle of the night, while their two children, Ace, seven, and Chiara, three, were at home.
He was taken to hospital for treatment at the time, and they are said to be “deeply shaken” by the incident.
Security has been beefed up at the remote ranch, with the National Crime Agency investigating the incident.
Speaking to MailOnline, he said: “We’re taking advantage of every day as it comes! We just really want to protect our children!
“We didn’t mean to talk about it in public. But, we are passing day by day.

“We just really wanted to protect our children. Our family is very important to us and it forms the basis of everything that we do. ”
Security has since been beefed up at the remote home after it was shaken, but fortunately escaped serious injuries.
JB also praised his wife Chloe – whom he married in 2014 – as an incredible motivator whenever the upbeat star has a rare day of disappointment.
He added: “Everybody has days where they don’t feel as motivated as they normally would.
“Overall, I’m very motivated and my wife is also very supportive. We treat each other like a partnership.
“When she came down, it was my duty to step in and support her, and vice versa. Chloe and I have incredible ambitions.
“Every year, we tabulate our vision of what we want to achieve. Last year, we hit pretty much everything on our board.
“Vision boards are very important. It is only a reference. If you suffer from side tracking, you have something to refer to and go back to.
“We should all have dreams. We’re never too old to dream.”
JB became famous with the JLS quartet in 2008 when they finished second on The X Factor.
They split in 2013 with an estimated fortune of £6 million each. A reunion has been delayed by Covid.
JB turned to farming after owning an 11-acre estate in the suburbs of London.
He is also one of the main hosts of the children’s television show, Down on the Farm, alongside Storm Huntley.
JB now grows vegetables and raises cattle, pigs and turkeys – with Christmas clients including Little Mix members.
