Sarina asked Aston what it was like working with Boy George, Lyra and Dierdre O'Kane on The Big Deal judging panel.

"It wasn't as intimidating as it sounds and that is said with the most amount of respect for all of them."

"They're ridiculously talented people - all of them. Everyone's had their career highs... but yeah it wasn't as intimidating as it should be."

Favourite TV show

Aston admitted he switches between shows all the time, but right now he's binge-watching Grey's Anatomy. 

He recognises he's a very, "late starter," to this show but he started watching it when he heard his song was played on it.

"I'm completely hooked. I'm in."

Favourite book

Aston said the last book he read was Jay Shetty's Think Like A Monk.
