Alesha Dixon holds her own at BGT auditions

Wednesday February 8, 2012

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon showed show supremo Simon Cowell she's not afraid to speak her mind when she branded one of his favourite performers a "pub act".

Sparks flew between the 33-year-old, who was poached from BBC rival Strictly Come Dancing, and Simon as the panel watched a multi-tasking musician perform on the first day of the London auditions.

Simon said the musician, who played a couple of guitars and a tambourine at the same time, was "absolutely brilliant" and "incredible".

Alesha agreed he was "talented and clever", but added: "If I was in a pub, I would enjoy watching you ... but I would not want to see it again."

Meanwhile, former Baywatch star Carmen Electra is currently standing in for judge Amanda Holden in the London rounds, whilst she recuperates from the birth of her second child.
