JLS heartthrob Aston Merrygold has revealed his mum has given the seal of approval to his dancer girlfriend Sarah Richards.
Singer and Got To Dance judge Aston is approaching his six-month anniversary with Sarah, but took a while to introduce his new lady to mum Siobhan.
He told Reveal magazine: "I've always said that my mum has to approve of my girlfriends.
"Sarah didn't meet her until recently, because my rule is that a girl has to last a little while before she meets my mum!"
Aston's mum finally met dancer and choreographer Sarah backstage at the end of JLS' summer tour.
"Sarah definitely got the thumbs up," he said.
He added of his JLS bandmates: "The lads have known her for a while and they get on really well."
