Alesha Dixon won't tone down revealing outfits on Britain's Got Talent
Alesha Dixon thinks that at least one member of The Missing People Choir may be reunited with their missing relative thanks to their appearance on Britain's Got Talent.
Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden won't be forced into dressing more modestly on Britain's Got Talent, despite their revealing ensembles attracting complaints on last year's (16) show.
TV watchdog Ofcom was forced to launch an investigation after several viewers took issue with the female judges' skin-baring looks on one live show.
But as she gears up for the new series starting on Saturday (15Apr17), Alesha has insisted she won't be changing her style, because she and Amanda like the "glamorous" side of their judging roles.
“That’s the most fun part for us, getting to dress up and wear incredible designers - and you create show-stopping outfits that you wouldn’t go down the local pub in," she told The Sun newspaper.
"It’s a fantastic platform to have fun with fashion and I think that people really look forward to seeing what we’re going to wear. I think at the end of the day, Amanda and I, we are tasteful with what we do. We want to come out looking sexy and feminine and beautiful at the same time."
Alesha also said that head judge Simon Cowell wouldn't want her and Amanda to change the way they dress on the shows. In fact, she laughed that if the duo turned up wearing bin bags, Simon would be "mortified".
"It’s the last thing he wants," she said. "Otherwise he’d have hired four men, wouldn’t he?”
The first episode of the new series will see The Missing People Choir audition, with the members made up of people affected by loved ones going missing. The troupe are already being tipped for victory but aside from that, Alesha thinks their appearance on the show may lead to at least one of them being reunited with their missing relative.
"This choir actually shows the power of the show," she mused. "It was a really strange audition, one of the strangest auditions I’ve ever experienced.
"But at the same time I thought this is a fantastic platform, this is great, it’s going to raise awareness. Who knows how far this could go? Somebody could be found as a result of this.
It’s a community of people that have come together that other people can now join in with. This is bigger than just winning a talent competition - it took it to the next level.”
