Singer-songwriter, dancer and TV star Aston Merrygold is set to join the cast of hit CBBC show, Almost Never, which returns to the channel and BBC iPlayer in late October.
The hugely popular comedy-drama follows the ups and downs of band The Wonderland, made up of Harry, Nate and Oakley, as they try to make it big in the music industry alongside their arch rivals Girls Here First. After a successful first series, Aston joins the cast for series two which begins later this month.
Aston plays the role of The Wonderland’s new manager Jordan, joining a star-studded cast including Emily Atack, Colin Hoult and Kimberly Wyatt.
Aston says: “I’m super excited to join such a talented cast and hopefully use some of my experience in the music industry as inspiration for my role. I can’t wait to get stuck into such a fantastic series."
The first series of Almost Never saw the boy band embark on the road to pop stardom, whilst juggling friends, family, school and relationships. With guest appearances from Fleur East and Tess Daly, as well as a world class soundtrack, the show proved an instant smash with viewers.
Episodes 1-6 of series two will be available on iPlayer towards the end of October, alongside the first episode on CBBC.
