Alesha Dixon is set to host a second series of 'Alesha's Street Dance Stars' for the BBC, despite recently defecting to ITV
Alesha Dixon will host a second series of CBBC's 'Alesha's Street Dance Stars'.
The singer - who sensationally left the panel of BBC show 'Strictly Come Dancing' to join ITV's 'Britain's Got Talent' - will be returning to the channel to search the UK for the country's most talented dance troupes.
The show is among a number of series announced for young viewers, including 'Secret World', which will go behind the scenes to examine the work of various high-profile jobs and 'Superhuman', hosted by Tim Fitzingham.
CBBC controller Damian Kavanagh said: "These recent additions to the CBBC pipeline are all very different and each brings something new for our audience to experience and enjoy.
"It's important that we continue to offer children programmes they wouldn't find anywhere else except on CBBC."
Simon Cowell admitted when Alesha signed up to 'BGT' he poached her to mix things up with the BBC and claimed she was a great addition to the panel alongside himself, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
He said: "I love Alesha. She's feisty, opinionated and knows what it's like to be a competitor and judge. She is going to bring a lot to the table."
