Is this the end of JLS? Reports suggest that one of the chart-topping boyband is planning a career away from the group as Aston Merrygold has meetings with TV bosses in the US.
A source has told the Daily Mirror that Aston has lined up a number of meetings with TV executives in the US in a bid to make it as a TV presenter. The backflipping star is said to be keen to carve out a solo career away from bandmates Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Oritse Williams.
Aston has already made headway with his new career back home in the UK as the new judge on Sky's talent show Got To Dance. The singer was announced as the replacement for Adam Garcia back in August and as filming begins, he's said to be seriously impressing telly bosses.

''The boys started off doing bits and pieces for the music TV stations and all really enjoyed it. They're all naturals in front of the camera and Aston's impressed a lot of people as a judge on 'Got To Dance', " the source tells the Mirror.
And now Aston apparently wants to take things further, as he tries his luck in the States: ''He's had a couple of meetings already and people are putting out feelers for him.''
JLS fans shouldn't worry though as the source insists that Aston's first priority will always be the band: ''In the meantime, Aston remains very happy with the rest of the boys and he has no intention of quitting the band at all. Singing remains his first love.''
