JLS star Aston Merrygold on band split news: 'My mum thought I'd got someone pregnant'

Singer Aston Merrygold has admitted that when he initially told his mother that he had 'news' to tell her, she didn't expect it to be about JLS calling it a day.

The boyband announced their shock split yesterday, but Merrygold revealed to The Sun newspaper that when he told his mum that he needed to share a secret with her she thought he had got someone pregnant:

"The first person I told about our plan to call it a day was my mum. First it was just a text saying, 'I've got some news'."

"She replied in seconds with, 'Who is pregnant?' So I called her and told her not to worry, and that me and the boys were going our separate ways. She is hard to shock but she was obviously upset. The whole experience was lived by all our families as much as us."

His bandmate Marvin Humes confessed that the first person he told was his pregnant wife, Rochelle Humes, adding: "Rochelle was the first person I spoke to about where it was all heading. It was something we discussed for a while and she was definitely the first person I confided in."

"She's in the same job as me, so understands exactly what it's like to be a part of it. She knows what I am going through. I can't lie, I have been emotional about it."
