The Future Dad broke his silence on the game …
A few weeks have been reserved for Aston Merrygold, but unfortunately the end is rather unexpected.
The former JLS singer was kicked out of the Strictly Ballroom after failing to impress the judges this weekend.
After Aston and his dance partner Janette performed their Viennese Waltz, they found themselves dancing alongside Mollie King and her partner AJ Pritchard.
Unfortunately for Aston, Chief Justice Shirley Ballas chose to save Mollie and AJ, which means the pair was kicked off the competition.
With Craig Revel Horwood scoring the pair a surprise four, this seems to be the reason for his departure.
Harry Judd shares with Twitter, "His dance was below normal for his very high level, but a 4 was too hard. # Strictly & # 39;

However, since Aston's departure from the ballroom, many felt very strongly that there was perhaps a foul play involved – with some users arguing that it might be part of the current "race row".
A user said, "This is what sent him, wondering if Craig is a little racist, if not why? Poorer show without Aston # Strictly. & # 39;
Another wrote: "Wrong racist and STUPID decision to eject Aston which was the main reason why many people were watching # Strictly."

While there is no word from the BBC surrounding the very strong allegations, Aston has since said that although he is upset to have left the competition, there is no bad blood.
Speaking with Zoe Ball in the It Takes Two show, Aston shared that he was expecting to be in the last two: "Yeah. I guess when you're in that position on the dashboard, you just come out, Ok, I'm ready to do it again if I have to. "
The former JLS then added, "I'm fine, I have to dance twice in one night."
However, Aston keeps only good memories of his stint on the show – and used his experience to fuel a future project.
Daddy-to-be shared, "I loved him and I talked to one of my close friends and my girlfriend and we're going to open a pretty fun dance studio to London teach children to dance & # 39; before adding: "I can not wait to become a dad and give all this energy and wisdom that Janette has passed on to me".
