Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has said he was "disappointed" in Alesha Dixon for not telling anyone she was leaving the show.
Alesha left the BBC one celebrity dancing competition in January after three years, deflecting to ITV and joining the new Britain's Got Talent panel.
But Craig, who has judged on Strictly since its start in 2004, complained that he had to find out via the press.
"It was a shock because we found out through the Press. I was a bit disappointed. I wish she had texted or called," he told The Sun.
Speaking to the newspaper, Craig did however wish the singer and dancer good luck for her debut at the weekend
He added: "Good luck to her. I hope it works out."
Britain’s Got Talent 2012 starts on Saturday at 8PM on ITV1.
