Alesha Dixon says she found it "nerve-wracking" returning to work on 'Britain's Got Talent' after giving birth to her first child, daughter Azura
Alesha Dixon found returning to work "nerve-wracking" after giving birth.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who has four-month-old daughter Azura with partner Azuka Ononye - is happy to have returned to her career, but admits it was bizarre to step out of her "bubble" at first.
She said: "It's a bit weird being glammed up again because I've just been at home for the past four months. I would look in the mirror and be like, 'Oh I forgot to brush my hair today.'
"I've been living in my bubble and now I've got to get back out there. I want to be working and to set an example to Azura, but going back to work was so nerve-wracking."
The 33-year-old star also admitted she was "scared" of having dress fittings for the 'Britain's Got Talent' auditions so soon after giving birth.
She told Closer magazine: "When I had my 'BGT' dress fitting, it was scary putting on glamorous clothes after having a baby.
"You feel like, 'Oh, here we go.' But my first day was really positive and it felt good to be back. I feel energised."
