Making his way through swathes of fans, former JLS star Aston Merrygold visited the Wave 105 studio to talk about life after JLS and being a judge on Sky1’s Got to Dance.

Talking to Wave 105 presenter Andy Jackson, Aston spoke about the difficulties of fronting and working on a television show and the music business. Aston also talked about the importance of role-models, with Michael Jackson being a key figure to his own success, and the ‘thick-skinned’ approach he now uses to fight against bullies and negativity.

Aston’s new album, ‘Showstopper’ features his new single, ‘Get Stupid’, which is released in October through Warner Bros Records.
