Alesha Dixon made quite an impression when she did a spot of guest-judging on X Factor.

The singer filled in twice during this years show – first for Nicole Scherzinger and the second time for Sharon Osbourne – and fans were begging for her to be kept on.

But the singer, who has been a regular judge on Britain’s Got Talent since 2012, has said she’d never make the permanent move to Simon’s other hit talent show, because Amanda Holden wouldn’t let her!

The mum-of-one joked to new! magazine: “Amanda wouldn’t let me! Do you know what, I had an amazing time. Simon and I have got such good banter and we had a right laugh.

“I went home and said, ‘I really enjoyed it.’ I thought it was going to be boring watching singer after singer because we have so much variety on BGT, but I really enjoyed it.”
