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.”

But Alesha does admit that her mum and nan urged her to accept the offer. Read the rest of this entry »

Britain’s Got Talent And The Voice Go Head To Head As BBC And ITV Spark Ratings War

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 24, 2012

War between two big:

The BBC and ITV are set for a ratings war for Saturday night supremacy when their respective talent shows go head-to-head in the battle for viewers.

The Voice makes its debut at 7pm tonight with the return of Britain’s Got Talent an hour later at 8pm – meaning the shows will overlap for 20 minutes.

It had been feared they would crossover for as long as 50 minutes and the exact timings have been a source of tension since it emerged both channels were launching their shows on the same night.

BBC bosses accused ITV of trying to sabotage the debut of their new series as BGT normally launched around three weeks later in the year.

However ITV claimed a clash was foreseeable if the BBC opted to launch a Saturday evening series in the spring.

The departure of Alesha Dixon from the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing to join the BGT panel alongside Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and David Walliams, did not improve relations and neither did the suggestion by The Voice’s co-host Reggie Yates that his show was “more credible” than other talent shows.

Simon Cowell’s Quip Leaves Alesha Dixon Furious

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 21, 2012

The cracks are already beginning to show between Simon Cowell and his glamorous new protegee Alesha Dixon after he left the beauty speechless during aBritain’s Got Talent audition by quipping, “Who are you?”

Simon was pleased as punch when he poached the former Mis-Teeq singer from the panel of Strictly Come Dancing, admitting it was a victory against what he sees as the nemesis of his string of TV talent shows.

Alesha, who was a judge on Strictly for three seasons after waltzing her way to victory on the show in 2007, was brought in as a glamorous new edition to the BGTjudging desk, alongside funnyman David Walliams and original judge Amanda Holden.

But it Simon and Alesha have been rubbing each other up the wrong way. A war of words erupted when dance group Lil’ Diamondz – who won Dixon’s kids’ TV show Alesha’s Street Dance Stars in September – auditioned, with the star telling them that they “hadn’t let her down”.

So Solid Crew’s Mc Harvey Reveals ‘Relationship’ With Cheryl Cole

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 31, 2012

Former So Solid Crew rapper Mc Harvey has revealed he bonded with Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole following her split from ex-husband Ashley.

The star has sensationally revealed he grew close to Cheryl in 2010 when fans thought she was dating dancer Derek Hough.

When asked about his secret relationship with Cheryl, MC Harvey told Now magazine: “Oh my God, oh my God! How the hell do you know that? Gosh. She’s a good girl. We’ve got a great respect for each other.”

Despite refusing to confirm a full-on romance out of respect for Cheryl, he said: “There was a relationship and an attraction to each other’s aura. I am not going to sit here and say we went to that restaurant and this restaurant. But I’m sure people aren’t stupid.”

The rapper admitted Cheryl confided in him after the breakdown of her marriage to footballer Ashley Cole but Harvey is no angel himself – he left wife Alesha Dixon for pop star Javine Hylton, with whom he had daughter Angel in 2008, but the couple split the following year.

Revealing more about his relationship with Cheryl, he said: “We’ve known each other for years. But then (after Cheryl split with Ashley) we started confiding in each other. A lot of it was like, ‘We can’t trust anyone out there, so we’re just going to trust each other.'”

He added: “You know when two people have been through the same stuff and confide in each other? That’s what it was. And then naturally when you confide in each other you become more…. (goes silent)” Read the rest of this entry »

‘Britain’s Got Talent’: Amanda Holden’s ‘Brainless’ Dig At Kelly Brook

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 »
