5 Seconds of Summer's Ashton Irwin wants to return to acting.

The 20-year-old singer - who along with Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood is a member of the Australian pop punk band - has confessed he was a child actor before he turned to music and would definitely consider returning to his roots.

He admitted: ''I was acting for years before the band so I would like to get into that again. I was in a few things, I'm not going to admit what they were, but it was fun and I had a good time.''

The 'She Looks So Perfect' hitmaker also revealed that although he feels like he's living the dream, constantly being on the road means he's unable to find a girl to settle down with.

He told We Love Pop magazine: ''I'm single right now, but I think anyone would find it hard if they were in a different country every day. I only spent two weeks at home last year and it's really hard to find someone when you move around so much.''

Ashton is now looking forward to hosting a party back home in his native Australia, when he and his band mates get some well-deserved time off.

He added: ''Mikey and I are planning an end-of-summer BBQ because we do this thing where we put a sprinkler under a trampoline, then jump in the sprinkler, so it's like a water park in your garden. It's very Australian!''
