STRICTLY favourite Aston Merrygold has revealed he rejected sex five times a day while in boyband JLS.
He said: “I lived every 21-year-old man’s dream and was having the time of my life. That’s the only way I could put it. I got offered sex at least five times a day.
“We couldn’t walk anywhere because we would have girls throwing themselves at us.”
Aston said the quartet, who had five UK No1 singles and sold more than 10million records worldwide, were repeatedly required to get up close and personal with female dancers to film a series of sexy music videos.
He is applying the same mindset to his sexy routines with pro dance partner Janette Manrara.
But the singer is adamant his former JLS dancer girlfriend Sarah Richards, 5½ months pregnant with their first child, has nothing to worry about.
And he said it was Sarah who wanted to make sure his passionate dance relationship with Janette is believable.
He said: “Sarah tells me to go all the way. She says whatever they ask me to do, do it because it’s Strictly.”
The Brit-Award winning performer is adamant that none of his fellow professionals – including actor Davood Ghadami and TV presenter Ruth Langsford – will see their relationships fall victim to the infamous Strictly curse this year, despite the addition of several stunning new dancers, including former Playboy model Nadiya Bychkova.
“All the girls are beautiful and so talented. It’s like Hollywood has been thrown onto the BBC.
“I get the Strictly curse but I’m sure half the time it comes from a seed that gets planted somewhere from a fifth party and becomes embedded. Like someone reads a comment on Twitter and goes, ‘Oh, what I have done?’
“But not this year. I think everyone is more than happy and concentrating on their dancing. I’m like, ‘Alright guys! No, I’m not! It’s all about the dance for me’.
“Janette is amazing and I went for dinner with her and Sarah the other day.”
