I'll be disappointed if I get BGT chop, says Dixon


Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon said she would be "disappointed" if Simon Cowell shuffles his pack and installs new celebrity panellists for next year's show.

Pop star and dancer Dixon (36) said she is prepared for the talent show supremo to wield the axe following a successful few years with fellow judges Amanda Holden and David Walliams.

She told a Sunday newspaper: "Truthfully, there would be an element of me that would be disappointed, but I'm a realist and I like to think I live in the real world.

"The nature of these shows is that sometimes they change. That's life."

The former Mis-Teeq singer has just embarked on her latest stint as a BGT judge, with the audition episodes currently appearing on ITV, having previously wowed audiences herself by winning 2007's Strictly Come Dancing.

A chart-topping career as a solo recording artist followed before taking on the judge's role in BGT.

"We've had four fantastic years together on Britain's Got Talent," she said.

"It's been a success, but if they decide to change it next year, that's fine.

"You can't get into the entertainment world and think that things don't change.

"Everything changes - that's life."

Dixon also responded to criticism of the number of foreign hopefuls on BGT - and called for more, not fewer, international acts.

"I don't see what the problem is. We are kind of doing a World's Got Talent," she said.

"It's been picked up by so many countries so a lot of people want to travel to the UK to be on the show."
