JLS singer Aston Merrygold has been confirmed for a judging role on Sky1's 'Got To Dance'
Aston Merrygold has been confirmed for 'Got To Dance'.
The JLS star will replace Adam Garcia on the panel of Sky1's popular dance contest and thinks his experience on the 'The X Factor' in 2008 will help him relate to the show's contestants.
The 24-year-old singer - who is known for his back-flips - said in a statement: "I have always been a fan of 'Got To Dance' and I'm absolutely buzzing to be part of the best dance show on TV.
"My past experience on talent shows will help me understand what the contestants are going through and I can't wait to get started."
Adam is leaving the show to pursue his West End career and has wished his successor "all the best" in his new role.
He commented: "I have absolutely loved my time on 'Got To Dance', it truly has been the most incredible experience.
"It has shown me the wealth of talent the UK has to offer and the crew on the show have become a second family.
"However, I feel now is the time to pass the baton on to someone new. I want to wish Aston all the best and hope he has as much fun on this show as I did."
Kimberly Wyatt and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo join Aston on the panel. Davina McCall is set to return to her presenting duties.
The fourth series is scheduled to air on Sky1 in 2013.
