Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions: Alesha Dixon clashes with Simon Cowell

Alesha Dixon (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Britain's Got Talent 2013 kicks off next Saturday night and Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell are set to come to blows!

This year will see the pair both back on the panel, along with David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

And teasing the new series, Alesha warned there would be drama, as always!

"There were quite a few fall-outs at the ­auditions this year. We had a lot of arguments," she said. “There were many times when we disagreed – many times. We got very passionate about the acts we believed in.”

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday today, Alesha revealed that - to no one's real surprise - David once again sided with his Simon all the time!

She added: “It was very much girls versus boys, so me and Amanda were up against Simon and David a lot of the time.

"And we loved winding each other up. But I don’t think Simon would want me on the panel if I didn’t have an opinion.

"That’s the whole point of being a judge. He calls me gobby and he’s right. I’m not afraid to voice my views and if I was I wouldn’t be there.”


Meanwhile, Alesha said she was confident that BGT would triumph over The Voice in next weekend's ratings battle.

"We’ve got a great show this year. People aren’t going to be disappointed, they’ll love it," she gushed. “And the talent is great – I have no idea who will win. We’ve got a lot of variety this year. There are lots of singers but also great comedians, illusionists and other acts doing things I’ve never seen before.”

Britain's Got Talent 2013 starts on April 13 on ITV.
