Alesha: 'Simon likes that we are one, big dysfunctional family'

Alesha Dixon has revealed that there is absolutely no rivalry between herself and fellow Judge Amanda Holden… much to Simon’s disappointment.

Ahead of the new series of BGT - which starts this Saturday - Alesha revealed: “I don’t know if Simon likes us to bicker. I think he secretly loves the fact that Amanda and I really like each other, he likes that on our show it’s one big dysfunctional, happy family. The banter is brilliant, if something feels good, it feels good.

Amanda: "I’ve learnt a lot about Simon this year"

Amanda Holden has revealed that despite working with her fellow Judges for years, she’s still learning new things about boss, Simon Cowell.

Speaking of her fellow Judges, Amanda claimed: “I’ve learnt a lot about Simon this year. He’s wanting to know much more about every single contestant, he's delving really deeply into people’s personal lives, he’s asking about their motivations, how they feel, how happy they are.
