Aston Merrygold wants to open a restaurant.

The JLS star told The Star that he has plans to open a place of his own.

“A couple of years ago, I had the idea about opening a restaurant but it didn’t happen. I need to get back on it.” he said.

“We count the pennies definitely! But having my own restaurant is something I’d really like to make happen.

“We’re very careful with our money. We play hard but work hard and are smart about it.”

An insider at Rio Ferdinand’s Manchester restaurant Rosso said: “Aston’s been up here a lot lately. He seems really interested in opening his own place. He’s been looking for some advice from Rio about running it all.”
