Judges have such a laugh on BGT, says Alesha

BRITAIN'S Got Talent star Alesha Dixon is already excited about returning to the panel next year, because the judges have such a laugh.

The singer, who has joined fellow judge David Walliams in showing her support for the British Olympics team ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games, insists even Simon Cowell is unable to stop cracking a smile when she, Walliams and Amanda Holden are joking around.

Dixon said: "There was a genuine chemistry. I think even Simon really enjoyed it, you could see that.

"As much as David was winding him up, I think he loves that. Amanda's got a filthy laugh and the two of us are constantly laughing, and I think that's the thing."

The 33-year-old former Strictly Come Dancing judge is confident all of the 2012 BGT judges will be returning to the panel next year.

She said: "Simon was really open about not wanting to change the panel. We just all genuinely get on, it's really lovely. It makes going to work really nice.

"We're not signed up yet but Simon said on the show, live on TV, that he wants the whole panel there and we've all had individual phone calls from various people to say they'd love us back.

"But there's no rush. The contracts will get signed when they get signed, but at the moment there's positive energy all around the show."
