Alesha Dixon is keen to sign up singer Lily Allen to become a judge on 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Alesha Dixon is keen for Lily Allen to become a judge on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former winner-turned-judge on the BBC One ballroom dancing show thinks either outspoken pop star Lily or Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh would be great new additions to the show's panel.

She said: "Lily would be great on the 'Strictly' panel. She's said before she loves it and I think she'd be a brilliant judge.

"I'd quite like to see Kimberley Walsh on the 'Strictly' panel too."

Alesha - who is joined on the panel by Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood, and Bruno Tonioli - admitted despite all the things she learned while competing for the show, she's not had much chance to put her moves into practice recently because of an injury.

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I've been recovering, taking it easy from a foot operation, the BRIT Awards was my first night out in heels for weeks, but I had to take them off and walk around in bare feet. I couldn't party at all."

Lily Allen

Chart-topping sunny pop, often with a melancholy lyrical undertone or some caustic social comment, from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic stars.
