Alesha Dixon, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and David Walliams are linking up for the 10th time in the 15-series history of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT). Having launched the careers of two dancing dogs, a gymnastics group from Surrey and a British soldier turned magician, the hunt is on for another entertainment great.
Born in Hertfordshire, current permanent judge Alesha Dixon has spent 20 years in the public eye after coming to fame in the early 2000s. A founding member of Mis-Teeq, she went on to have a successful solo career with multiple chart hits.
Winning Strictly Come Dancing in 2007, she became a household name and two years later she was appointed one of the show’s judges. Head-hunted by Cowell for his BGT 2012, she left Strictly for ITV after reportedly tripling her money.
Since then, Dixon has been an ever-present on entertainment competitions, appearing on the likes of The X Factor, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Australia’s Got Talent and Walk The Line.
Alesha Dixon’s net worth
After two decades in the spotlight and numerous musical hits, Dixon is an accomplished businessperson. At just 43 years old, and after continuing to grow her personal brand, she is reportedly worth around £2.9 million.
Dixon has multiple projects under her belt, including the launch of her own jewellery line and lucrative endorsement deals for the car manufacturer Ford, Toblerone chocolate, cosmetics company Avon and airline Thomson Airways.
She was previously named the creative director of gym chain LA Fitness, with her remuneration based upon business results. This was a move that went very well, as the brand ascended to become the largest chain of non-franchised fitness clubs in North America.
Dixon is not just a media personality, but a dedicated campaigner and philanthropist. She is a patron of the African-Caribbean Leukaemia Trust and Vice-President of the League Against Cruel Sports.
