JLS' Aston Merrygold Crashes Ferrari After Being Mobbed

JLS star Aston Merrygold has crashed his £152,000 Ferrari into a recycling bin after being mobbed by screaming fans.

Days after celebrating his 24th birthday, the Everybody In Love singer arrived at a recording studio in Bermondsey, south London to find a big crowd of teenagers waiting for him.

He tried to reverse the grey California car, but crashed it into a recycling bin - smashing one of the rear tail-lights.

One onlooker tells The Sun: "He started to reverse quite quickly - I don't know if he was trying to show off or not.

"You couldn't tell if he said anything or not because it was so noisy with all the girls around."

Aston apparently hurried into the Music Bank studios and didn't come out until several hours later when he drove off in the damaged car.

The singer celebrated his birthday on Valentine's Day with his bandmate Marvin Humes, who is engaged to The Saturdays star Rochelle Wiseman.
