Britain's Got Talent 2012: Alesha Dixon gets tips from Cheryl Cole on dealing with Simon Cowell!

Alesha Dixon

New Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has suggested getting in touch with pop star pal Cheryl Cole for advice on dealing with Simon Cowell.

Alesha joined BGT this month as a new judge alongside David Walliams, with the pair joining Simon and Amanda Holden on the new look panel.

She told Now magazine this week: "I should call Cheryl and get some tips from her on how to deal with Simon."

The laughable singer branded Simon "cheeky" for saying he pinched her from Strictly Come Dancing just to annoy the BBC.

"He's so cheeky! He's doing it to stir it up," Alesha said.

"At the end of the day it's my choice and I already felt that three years at Strictly... was a respectable amount of time and I was looking forward to trying something new."

Britain’s Got Talent 2012 will air on ITV1 in April.
