JLS star Aston Merrygold has been pictured taking his seat on dancing talent show Got To Dance for the first time since announcing his decision to join the program's judging panel. 

The 'She Makes Me Wanna' star was announced as the Sky1 show's newest judge back in August over the summer, and replaces departing judge Adam Garcia after three seasons on the series. 

Aston joins returning panelists Kimberley Wyatt and Diversity star Ashley Banjo on the long-running dance competition, which has been running since 2009. 

After the announcement was made Aston said he was "buzzing" to join the "best dance show on TV" and promised to be a fair judge for the upcoming fourth series of the show. 

Aston is the first member of JLS to branch out into a regular television career, and will balance his duties with promotion work on the band's brand new album 'Evolution'.

The 'Hottest Girl In The World' four-piece recently teased their fourth studio album and promised a "back to basics" record that is "edgier" and more R&B than their last album.

JLS will releases new single 'Hottest Girl In The World' this weekend (21st October) before returning with 'Evolution' on 5th November.

Got To Dance is expected to return to TV in January 2013 for a new series.
