Alesha Dixon on 'Strictly Come Dancing' exit: 'I want new challenges'

By
Alesha Dixon has explained that she quit Strictly Come Dancing because she wanted "new challenges".

The Britain's Got Talent judge, who defected from the BBC ballroom reality show in January, believes that the ITV competition "has everything".

"I felt three years was a respectable amount of time," she told the Daily Star. "It was a fantastic experience as a contestant and as a judge, and it was time for new things.

"I don't want to be predictable. I want to try new things. I want new challenges. That's what life is all about."

The 33-year-old said of judging Talent: "This show has everything. Not only do I love dancing but I love singing, I love dancing dogs, I love comedy, I love everything entertainment.

"This is the one show that enables and encompasses all that."

The 'Knockdown' singer later insisted: "I'm not going to do anything different, I'm just going to be myself.

"You know me, I stand up for myself all the time. I don't like bitchiness and I don't like controversy and all that negative stuff.

"I can't pretend to be something that I'm not. All I can be is honest and myself. That's what I've always done."

Britain's Got Talent returns later in the spring on ITV1.
