Think being a celebrity is easy? Think again – poor Aston Merrygold can’t even take the tube.

The JLS singer hasn’t taken the tube in about three years, because the last time he tried he got mobbed!

“I did try once when me and my friends were going into town,” he told Now.

“I said: ‘Let’s get the Tube.’

“They asked me if I was mad and I was like: ‘Noooo, it’ll be fine.’

“There were girls EVERYWHERE!

“We didn’t even make it to the Tube.

“We had to go straight out of the station and jump in a taxi!”
