Aston Merrygold is a British singer, songwriter, dancer, television personality, and actor. He was a member of boyband JLS. Marvin Humes was also a member of the band.

His father was Jamaican. His mother, Siobhan, is Irish. He was racially bullied at school. He has stated:

I know what it feels like to be bullied. When I joined my school football team aged 14 I was abused because of my race. I was the only black kid on the team and some of the others picked on that… I am mixed race, half black and half white, but they would call me ‘Paki’ because they thought I looked Asian. They would say things like ‘you little black b******’. Looking back now, it was disgusting.

He is married to Sarah Louise Richards, with whom he has two children.

Aston’s maternal grandfather’s surname was Chambers.
