Dixon wishes BBC rival good luck

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has revealed she is a fan of her opposite number Danny O'Donoghue but stayed tight-lipped when she was asked if she will watch him on rival show The Voice.

The pair, who will both be seen tomorrow night when their respective talent shows are aired, were together this morning for an appearance on the Capital Breakfast Show with Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon.

Danny, the singer with Irish band The Script, said his main worry was accidentally swearing on the show and joked he had a "limited" vocabulary.

He said: "I tend to curse a lot, so God forgive me when we get to the live shows."

ITV1's BGT and BBC One's The Voice start tomorrow and go head to head for around 20 minutes in the prime-time Saturday night schedule.

Alesha wished Danny "good luck" ahead of his debut on the show and said she had been to see his band in concert, but dodged the question when she was asked if she would tune in to watch him on TV.

Speaking at the press launch for BGT yesterday, show supremo Simon Cowell said he would "probably watch about five minutes" of the BBC show which also features Tom Jones and Jessie J among the judges searching for a singing star.
