Alesha Dixon to feature on Piers Morgan's Life Stories

Alesha Dixon is to reveal all on TV in Piers Morgan's Life Stories.

The former tabloid journalist turned chat show host announced on Twitter that the Britain's Got Talent judge will be the first celebrity to take part in the 12th series of his ITV show.

Piers tweeted: "CONFIRMED: My new Life Stories series starts @ITV 9pm, Friday Sep5. First guest is @GotTalent star @AleshaOfficial - should be brilliant."

The 35-year-old star rose to fame with girlband Mis-Teeq before embarking on a solo career. She won Strictly Come Dancing in 2007 and went on to become a judge on the BBC show - controversially replacing older panel member Arlene Phillips. Alesha then moved to ITV show Britain's Got Talent in 2012.

Although she has been extremely protective of her private life, celebrities usually open up about their personal troubles on Piers show.

Alesha married MC Harvey, of So Solid Crew, in 2005 after a five-year relationship. But their marriage collapsed just a year later when he was revealed to be having an affair with his West End stage co-star, former Popstars: The Rivals contestant, Javine Hylton.

Last year, Alesha and partner Azuka Ononye became parents to daughter Azura Sienna.

Piers has been tipped to return to ITV's Britain's Got Talent panel in 2015 as a replacement for David Walliams.
