Alesha Dixon has revealed there were some "very passionate" disagreements between the 'Britain's Got Talent' judges this year as they argued about who to put through on the ITV show

Alesha Dixon says there were "a lot of arguments" between the 'Britain's Got Talent' judges this year.

The 34-year-old star - who is a judge on the ITV show alongside Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Amanda Holden - has revealed there were some "very passionate" disagreements at the auditions as the panellists argued about which contestants to put through.

She said: "There were quite a few fall-outs at the auditions this year. We had a lot of arguments.

"There were many times when we disagreed - many times. We got very passionate about the acts we believed in.

"It was very much girls versus boys, so me and Amanda were up against Simon and David a lot of the time.

"And we loved winding each other up. But I don't think Simon would want me on the panel if I didn't have an opinion.

"That's the whole point of being a judge. He calls me gobby and he's right. I'm not afraid to voice my views and if I was I wouldn't be there."

The talent show will go up against 'The Voice' for more than an hour when it returns to ITV on Saturday (13.04.13), but Alesha is pleased about the schedule clash and thinks it will be a good move for both shows.

She added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I think it is a positive thing. At the end of the day both shows benefit because everyone's talking about it.

"It hypes them up and makes things a lot more interesting for the viewers."
