Alesha Dixon: 'I MC on new album'

Alesha Dixon performs in Wigan


Alesha Dixon has revealed that she will MC on her new album.

The singer releases her new LP, The Entertainer, in November and told BBC Breakfast that she had a lot of fun recording it.

"The album is a lot of fun actually," she said. "It's very colourful, full of energy and the production is quite tough."

She confirmed: "I'm MCing again on this album, which is something I used to do when I was Mis-Teeq. It was a lot of fun to make the record."

The term confused presenter Susanna Reid, who asked her to explain what it meant.

"Oh [it's] rapping," she said. "When I was in Mis-Teeq, I was known as MC/rapper of the group and it was this weird noise that used to come out of my mouth. Kind of fast taking, which I'm kind of good at, with a slightly different tone to it. "

She added: "I know that sounds odd!"

Dixon releases 'Drummer Boy', the first single from the new album, on September 5.
