Aston Merrygold's shoe obsession
Aston Merrygold is obsessed with trainers and owns more than 70 pairs of sport shoes
Aston Merrygold is obsessed with trainers.
The JLS star - who is joined in the group by Marvin Humes, Oritse Williams and Jonathan JB Gill in boyband JLS - insists he has stayed the same since his rise to fame, but admits his spending habits have escalated.
He said: "I don't think I've lost touch with reality, but my trainer collection has gone off the scale.
"We had a big clean out and I probably away 60 to 70 pairs to my brothers and my friends."
The 22-year-old hunk admits the band's success has been a rollercoaster ride, and although they have enjoyed countless parties there is one American bash which sticks out in his mind.
He explained to Top of the Pops magazine: "It's been amazing! We've done so much. We went to a pool party in Las Vegas which was absolutely crazy.
"It was so hot - everyone was just dancing around. It looked like a scene from a film."
