Alesha Dixon is far more naturally hysterical than, say, Kelly Rowland, so it’s a shame we don’t get to see more of her vibrant personality on Strictly Come Dancing.
But get some booze down her on Alan Carr Chatty Man and she’s a RIOT.
And, drunk off her brains, she did actually speak the most sense regarding the much publicised rivalry between her show and X Factor, which she’s made no secret on Twitter of being a fan of.
“‘I don’t understand why we can’t just enjoy both shows,” she said. “I actually don’t think the public give a shit. It’s the producers and the media. The public will just Sky+ one and watch it later, they don’t care.”
AIN’T THAT THE TRUTH.
“It’s swings and roundabouts. Next year they’ll be beating us, the year after we’ll beat them, who cares! Jog on Christmas.”
And that, right there, is kinda why Strictly‘s been winning this year. It can’t be arsed to get itself knee-deep in tabloid melodrama and ratings panics, because it’s too pre-occupied with just pounding out great, family-friendly television week in, week out.
It’s a shame Alesha got dumped by her record label AGAIN following last year’s under-performing Entertaineralbum, as it was actually pretty good. Let’s hope she gets another shot.
