Britain's Got Talent 2012 auditions: Simon Cowell plays cupid with Alesha Dixon!

Alesha Dixon

Cheeky Britain's Got Talent judges Simon Cowell and David Walliams tried to set up Alesha Dixon on a date during auditions in Cardiff at the weekend, but it seems Alesha wasn't too pleased!

40-year-old wannabe rapper Sacha seemed to take a liking to the newest judge on the panel, and Simon wasted no time in being mischievous.

“Alesha’s staying at St David’s Hotel, Room 511," he said, while David joked: “She will be back there and waiting for you about midnight.”

But Alesha hit back: “This isn’t a blind date. I’m here to judge talent, not find it for myself.”

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, a show source revealed: “Simon and David were being mischievous – it was like they wanted to make a point about her being single. But this guy was definitely not her type.

“She was furious with them for trying to set her up in such an embarrassing fashion. Having the whole of Cardiff knowing precisely where you are staying is not the best scenario from a personal safety point of view. She wasn’t impressed.”

Meanwhile it seems like the honeymoon period between the judges is well and truly over, with Alesha saying after the weekend's auditions: “I shouted at Simon and David during the auditions in Cardiff. I told them to shut up. They wouldn’t let me get a word in edgeways.”
