How old is Alesha Dixon?
Alesha Dixon is a singer, dancer, rapper and TV star born on October 7, 1978.
Now 44-years-old, these days she is known for her role as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent, after joining in 2012.
Alesha shot to fame in 2001 as a member of Mis-Teeq.
After the band split in 2005, Alesha pursued a career on her own.
She has also fronted many TV shows including Alesha’s Street Dance Stars (2010), Your Face Sounds Familiar (2013), Text Santa (2014–2015), Dance Dance Dance (2017) and The Greatest Dancer.
Alesha was even a judge on Strictly from 2009 to 2011.
Alesha shares the judging panel on BGT with Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Bruno Tonioli.
She spoke of the fellow judges relationship saying, “our show it’s one big dysfunctional, happy family. The banter is brilliant, if something feels good, it feels good.”
What are Alesha Dixon’s biggest songs?
As we know, Alesha rose to fame in R&B and garage girl group Mis-Teeq, alongside Sabrina Washington and Su-Elise Nash.
Their first album Lickin’ On Both Sides went platinum in 2001, while single All I Want reached No2 in the UK charts. They supported Shaggy on his UK tour that year.
In 2003 they released their most famous single, Scandalous.
It reached No2 in the UK and entered the top 10 in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and Denmark.
In total they achieved seven UK top ten hits including Why, One Night Stand, B With Me, Roll On and Can’t Get It Back.
In 2004 they were beginning to build up a fanbase in the States, touring and doing the rounds of chat shows.
However, their record label went bankrupt, and in 2005 the group split.
There has long been talk of a Mis-Teeq reunion and Alesha has said it would be a “disaster” if the band never came back together.
In April 2017, HOAR revealed Alesha was set for a seven-figure windfall after half of her royalties from her time in Mis-Teeq went entirely unpaid for more than ten years.
Alesha was known as a rapper during her time in the band, but branched out into a solo career when the group split.
She released two singles, but they didn’t achieve the same kind of success as Mis-Teeq’s work, and she was swiftly dropped by her record label.
However, her win on Strictly Come Dancing served to revitalise Alesha’s music career.
Single The Boy Does Nothing sold one million copies worldwide while 2008 album The Alesha Show went platinum, and she toured the UK as a solo act.
Is Alesha Dixon married and how many kids does she have?
Alesha has been with Azuka Ononye since 2012, although they have yet to tie the knot.
The couple have two daughters together – Azura Sienna in 2013 and Anaya Safiya in 2019.
She was previously married to MC Harvey, from English rap group So Solid Crew.
The two had dated since 2000 and got married in 2005, but divorced in 2006 after he had an affair with Pop Idol star Javine.
What is Alesha Dixon’s net worth?
Alesha had a successful music career, first in girl band Mis-Teeq and then as a solo artist.
She is also a successful entrepreneur with her own clothing line, and is looking to expand her brand even further as an actress and author.

Because of all of this, including her incredible TV career, Alesha has a reported net worth of around £3.2million.
