Aston Merry gold stands by all the decision she has made as a judge on 'Got To Dance' and thinks he is "really fair"
Aston Merrygold thinks he is a "really fair" 'Got To Dance' judge.
The JLS star - who shot to fame when the group came second on 'The X Factor' in 2008 - has just joined the panel of the talent show and admits that, while it was tough saying 'no' to some of the acts, he stands by all his decisions.
He said: "I think I've been really fair. There were some decisions when we said 'No' that I look back on and think it was a really good decision.
"Some people were brilliant but not quite ready yet. It's tough to say no sometimes but it's for their own benefit."
Aston - who sits on the panel alongside Kimberly Wyatt and Ashley Banjo - admits he initially found being a judge hard but quickly got into his stride.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I was still finding my feet at the start of the series, as I've been used to auditioning since I was 12 - not being on the other side as a judge.
"It became clearer towards the middle and end. I really enjoyed it."
