The JLS star met JJ when they were growing up in Peterborough and have been friends ever since.

“I feel like a proud dad,” Aston admitted, reports Now.

“I’ve never, ever watched Big Brother live before, but I actually sat there and watched the live stream for an hour.”

Perhaps when BFF JJ leaves the house he can replace Marvin Humes (who is settling down with The Saturdays’ Rochelle Wiseman) as Aston’s wingman.

“He’s successful with the ladies,” Aston added.

“He’s a pretty boy.”
