When asked who the nicest celebrity she knows is, Alesha said: "Beyoncé. I have met her a few times, and most recently I met her again at the afterparty for The Harder They Fall premiere, and she is consistently nice and just very sweet."
The Mis-Teeq singer added: "The reason why I said her, is because I think she is a great example of somebody who has arguably achieved more than most human beings.
"She is consistently nice and just very sweet," said Alesha Dixon
"She is at the top of her game, one of the most successful and powerful women in the world but when you meet her, there is a humility and kindness and warmth that exudes from her, and I think that is a really strong lesson for lots of people.

"Because I think there is this assumption that if someone is really successful or very famous, that they are not going to necessarily be kind or they might not be as approachable, but I think she is a wonderful example of somebody who is hugely successful and beautiful and that is quite rare.
"I have met so many kind and lovely people, but she came to mind as soon as I heard the question."
"She is at the top of her game, one of the most successful and powerful women in the world," added Alesha

Former US First Lady Michelle put it perfectly when she awarded Beyoncé with the 2020 BET Humanitarian Award, saying: "Ever since she was a little girl in Houston, Beyoncé Knowles Carter has been lighting up the stages and gracing the world with her talent, with her generosity of spirit, and with her love for her community.
"You can see it in everything she does, from her music that gives voice to Black joy and Black pain, to her activism that demands justice for Black lives."
