BGT's Alesha Dixon is a harsh critic
Ant and Dec have admitted they were surprised by what a harsh judge Alesha Dixon is on 'Britain's Got Talent'
Ant and Dec were surprised by what a harsh judge Alesha Dixon is.
The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' panellist has joined ITV1's 'Britain's Got Talent' for the new season and the Geordie presenting duo have admitted they didn't expect her to be so mean to the contestants.
Ant said: "We're slightly surprised at how harsh Alesha can be. She knows her stuff, especially with the dance acts. She gets very technical with them.
"She's also very honest, doesn't dress things up and isn't afraid to push that buzzer."
The pair also revealed they are thrilled Simon Cowell has returned to the panel after taking time out to focus on the US 'X Factor' because they missed his "unique" critiques.
Dec said: "It's great to have him back. He has a unique knack of saying what everyone is thinking at home."
Ant added: "He hits the nail on the head every time with his critiques. I don't think we realised how much we missed him until he came back."
Although they are happy with the judging panel - which also includes David Walliams and Amanda Holden - Ant and Dec haven't been impressed with all of the contestants.
Ant said: "There was someone who played their teeth which was very bizarre. You think you've seen it all and you haven't."
Dec added: "The British public constantly surprise you with weird and wonderful things. You think a) why, and b) how did you even discover you can do that!"
