Aston Merrygold has become the sixth celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing in potentially the biggest shock in the show's entire history. The former JLS star got the chop after being placed in a controversial dance-off with fellow singer Mollie King . The judges were completely divided, with head judge Shirley Ballas giving the casting vote that sent poor Aston home.
