Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon expecting baby
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly opened the first Britain's Got Talent live semi-final by announcing judge Alesha Dixon is having a baby.
The presenters started the ITV show with a song and one of the lines was: "And Alesha is expecting."
Dixon, 40, said she was "very happy" as her fellow judge David Walliams joked the baby was really his.
She has a five-year-old daughter, Azura, with her partner Azuka Ononye.
The programme will feature the first group of acts trying to win a spot in the final.
The winner of the series will win a cash prize and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
