Britain’s Got Talent’s Alesha Dixon: ‘Simon Cowell ‘Got Off’ On Stealing Me From Strictly’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 25, 2012

Alesha Dixon is adamant she was not forced to leave Strictly Come Dancing by Simon Cowell – but she does think the media mogul “got off” on stealing her from the BBC for Britain’s Got Talent.

The new Britain’s Got Talent judge was asked how she felt about Simon deliberately poaching her to cause controversy.

She tells The Mirror: “I’m sure he got off on that. But I’m a 33-year-old woman who makes her own decisions. It makes it sound like he stole me and I had no choice. I’m not a puppet.”

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 22, 2012

The new series of Britain’s Got Talent has already become catty as Amanda Holden’s claws came out for former judge Kelly Brook in the first auditions.

The pregnant actress said new panellist Alesha Dixon will last longer on the show than model Kelly did in 2009 because she “has got a brain”.

Three years ago, Kelly sat on the judging panel for just two days before Simon Cowell decided the show was too slow with four judges.

Or perhaps Kelly was too slow for the show if Amanda is to be believed. Comparing Alesha and Kelly, Amanda told The Sun: “You’ll have to talk to Simon about Alesha, he booked her, but I think she’s probably got something else – a brain.” Read the rest of this entry »
