Alesha Dixon is prepared to stand up for herself on 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The 33-year-old singer - who quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' in favour of becoming a judge on the ITV1 show - insists she's more than capable of holding her own against series boss Simon Cowell after he asked her who she was when she criticised a hopeful during the audition stages of the competition.
She said: "I'm not going to do anything different. I'm just going to be myself. You know me, I stand up for myself all the time. I don't like bitchiness and I don't like controversy and all that negative stuff.
"I can't pretend to be something that I'm not. All I can be is honest and myself and that's what I always do."
Despite clashing with fellow judge Simon, Alesha insists she gets on well with him and the other panellists, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "We're not rivals. We're together, we're a team. We're looking for a star and that's a nice feeling.
"I like the fact 'BGT' celebrates the best of British. This show has everything. Not only do I love dancing but I love singing, I love dancing dogs, I love comedy, I love everything entertainment.
"this is the one show that enables and encompasses all that. So the idea of seeing so many acts is such an exciting prospect."
