Alesha's role on the Australian version of Britain's Got Talent was announced back in early June.

According to reports, producers were initially eager to get Amanda Holden involved but her other work commitments made it impossible.

Alesha said at the time of the announcement: "I'm super excited to be joining the panel at AGT.

"I can’t wait to see what talent Australia has to give and I’m really looking forward to working with my fellow judges."
