'Strictly Come Dancing' star Aston Merrygold insists his lothario days are behind him
Aston Merrygold insists his lothario days are behind him.
The former JLS singer and his girlfriend Sarah Richards are expecting their first child together and Aston says he has settled down and the wild days of him being offered sex up to five times a day from fans are now over.
He told the Sunday Mirror: "Of course those days are over. I am nicely into a five-year relationship and have a baby on the way. It is all good."
However, Aston admitted that balancing 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals with Janette Manrara and supporting Sarah through her pregnancy has not been easy.
He explained: "At the moment I am not getting much sleep as there is not much room in the bed.
"I'm trying to juggle 'Strictly' and just trying to keep my girlfriend happy.
"It is fine but these are going to be the last moments really this year of just me and her as the baby is due in January."
Meanwhile, Aston admitted he is unsure what he will do if he is asked to take part in the 'Strictly' tour next year, as it will take place just after the baby is born.
He said: "If you get further in the competition, then you do get asked to do the tour. I just have to keep working hard. Yeah we could take the baby on tour, but we don't even know if it is a boy yet.
"The show is a journey. That is the only way to describe it. Mondays are the hardest bit as you look at your dance partner and they say 'You have this to learn.'
"And it is like, 'oh there is no way that is going to happen' and then you get to Saturday night and it all comes together and I think, 'I am good to go'. "When you get the call from Strictly, it is the biggest show on TV and you can't say no. You have to go for it."
