UK NEWS: ALESHA DIXON QUITS STRICTLY COME DANCING

It has been announced today that singer and Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon has left the show

Alesha won the fifth series in 2007 and later joined as a judge in 2009 replacing popular judge and choreographer Arlene Phillips.

In response to Alesha quitting the show a BBC spokesperson said “We wish her all the best”.

Alesha also fronts a Weight Watchers new TV ad campaign. This makes me laugh because she has NEVER been over weight or to my knowledge had issues with her weight. I thought Weight Watchers only hired famous faces to front campaigns who have had weight issues but have worked hard and lost a significant amount thanks to their programme.

It just seems like the UK marketing team wanted a woman of colour to front the campaign (Jennifer Hudson fronts the US campaign) and Alesha was the only high-profile woman of colour considered “suitable” enough to front the UK campaign. Hahaha.

Anyway I like Alesha and wish her the best of luck with her future endeavours.
