JLS' Aston Merrygold Hoping For Leap Year Marriage Proposal

The 'She Makes Me Wanna' star has said "today's the day" to finally end reign as single man.

JLS star Aston Merrygold has said he has his fingers crossed that a woman will propose to him today (29th February).

The leap year marriage proposal has become tradition on the 29th February – a leap day that only occurs once every four years

In a message on Twitter, Aston joked that he was hopeful that today would be his last as a single man.

He wrote: "Ok so today's the day waiting to get proposed to!!!! Ha yeeeea buddy Ax."

JLS are currently in the final rehearsals for their forthcoming UK arena tour, named '4th Dimension'.

The tour will mark the first time Aston and his bandmates have hit the road since the release of their recent album 'Jukebox', which includes the single 'She Makes Me Wanna' featuring Dev.
