New Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has revealed the mix of emotions she's experienced during this year's auditions, confessing she's been close to tears after some acts tried out!
The former Strictly judge managed to avoid the reality cliché of branding her time on the show an "emotional rollercoaster", but explained: "It's been really good.
"It's enjoyable, it brings out lots of different emotions, you get frustrated, you laugh a lot, sometimes you cry."
Alesha, who joined the show this year alongside David Walliams, added: "I've been close to tears.
"In the Manchester auditions, there have been a few singers where it's been quite emotional, definitely."
Britain's Got Talent 2012 will hit screens at the end of March on ITV1.
