Alesha to sing on Strictly

EXCLUSIF - Photocall - M6 Mobile Music Live concert, Issy-les-MoulineauxAlesha Dixon is determined to make not only her job as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing a success, but also her singing career.

She will sing her new single, co-written by Gary Barlow, live on the show. And to up the ante, Alesha is going one better than her rival Cheryl Cole by hiring the former Take That star to appear with her playing the piano.

Show bosses believe this will help them win the ratings war with The X Factor.

Good luck with that Alesha. As long as The X Factor has Olly and Jedward, we know which one we’ll be watching
