Alesha Dixon reiterated her support for Britain's Got Talent colleague and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo with some Black Lives Matter-inspired jewellery in the latest BGT semi-final.

The judge has backed the Banjo again after Diversity's George Floyd and BLM-inspired dance routine received more than 24,000 complaints.

The carefully chosen necklace in question, which spelled out "BLM", is the latest show of support from Dixon, who previously told those sending Banjo racial abuse to "kiss my black a**".

The accessory, matched with a yellow dress, received plenty of notice from viewers, with many taking to social media to praise the 41-year-old's conscientious fashion choice.

One person tweeted: "Alesha Dixon wearing a BLM necklace is such a power move and I am HERE for it."

Another said: "I have no choice but to STAN Alesha Dixon! What a queen," while another commented: "Well done Alesha! A great avenue to send out such important message."

Meanwhile over on Instagram, a post from Dixon also saw fans praising the star. One wrote: "Alesha, as always you look amazing.... but your necklace actually made me so proud to support you and all that you stand for tonight. You are such an inspirational woman. Keep doing what you do."

Banjo yesterday took to social media to thank ITV after it showed public support for Diversity following the backlash the dance troupe received, including placing an advert of support across national newspapers.

The 31-year-old said on Instagram: "This is what change looks like. @itv stand with @diversity_official and we've never been prouder. This is in all the national papers today.

"Thank you again to everyone that has supported us. #Diversity."
