BGT return prospect excites Alesha

Britain's Got Talent star Alesha Dixon is already excited about returning to the panel next year, because the judges have such a laugh together.

The singer, who has joined fellow judge David Walliams in showing her support for Team GB ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games, insists even Simon Cowell is unable to stop cracking a smile when she, Walliams and Amanda Holden are all joking around.

Dixon said: "There was a genuine chemistry. I think even Simon really, really enjoyed it, you could see that.

"As much as David was winding him up, I think he loves that. Amanda's got a filthy laugh and the two of us are constantly laughing, and I think that's the thing."

The 33-year-old former Strictly Come Dancing judge is confident all of the 2012 BGT judges will be returning to the panel next year.

She said: "Simon was really open about not wanting to change the panel. We just all genuinely get on, it's really lovely. It makes going to work really nice.

"We're not signed up yet but Simon said on the show, live on TV, that he wants the whole panel there and we've all had individual phone calls from various people to say they'd love us back.

Pudsey 'perfect' for Hollywood

Britain's Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler believes her victorious dog Pudsey would be perfect for Hollywood roles like the one played by Uggie in Oscar-winning film The Artist.

She said: "I did watch The Artist and thought it was an amazing film and Uggie was absolutely brilliant and, you know, I think Pudsey would be perfect for that kind of thing because he loves film work and looking at cameras."

Miss Butler says she is not afraid Pudsey's fame will split them up, because she is certain he could not cope away from her.

She said: "If Pudsey did go to Hollywood I'd have to go with him because, you know, there's no way you're going to separate me and Pudsey."

Last minute bets on the Britain's Got Talent final saw punters go potty for Pudsey and 17-year old owner, Ashleigh.

Bets are now on for Pudsey to appear in the next Mission Impossible film with odds at William Hill of 25/1 and it is 2/1 that Pudsey has his own show on Children's TV before the end of 2012.

"Jonathan & Charlotte were the long time favourites but there was a real run for Ashleigh & Pudsey on Saturday and we are paying out a considerable sum to the British dog loving public!" said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
