Alesha Dixon has the best of this year's golden buzzer acts on Britain's Got Talent, her fellow judges reckon.

Once again this year each of the panelists, as well as hosts Ant and Dec, have picked one act from the auditions to back straight through to the live shows.

Amanda Holden kicked things off on Saturday night when she became the first to hit the buzzer, sending 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott through to the semi-finals.

Alesha has backed a choir, which annoyed Simon Cowell who wanted to hit the golden buzzer for the same act.

He said: I wasn’t thinking too much about it and then as soon as she pressed it I just thought, ‘Oh God, I would have liked that choir’.

"That’s the kind of competition element there is between the judges, we all want to buzz for the best one. I would have buzzed if she hadn’t because they were fantastic."

Amanda agreed that Alesha's act was one to watch, saying: "Alesha’s buzzer could win the show, it’s amazing."

Alesha herself said: "My money is on Ant & Dec’s Golden Buzzer act or mine, but then that’s the thing I love, you just don’t know."

It turns out that Alesha had quite the reaction to Ant and Dec's choice, another young singer.

"When she walked onto that stage, I don’t think anybody expected that big and beautiful voice to come out of her mouth," Ant teased. "We were stood on the side of the stage with her father and he was just bursting with pride.

"Then we looked out at the judges and every single one of them had a huge smile on their faces - even Simon! Alesha was in tears and the audience’s reaction was like nothing we had experienced that day. We had to press our buzzer, she was just amazing and we can’t wait to see what she does in the live shows."

Britain's Got Talent continues this Saturday night on ITV.
