Alesha Dixon believes having BGT forced off the air could 'work in the favour' ...

Alesha Dixon has suggested that being forced to freeze the current series of Britain's Got Talent could be beneficial to the 2020 finalists.

The annual ITV talent show aired its audition round before it was put on hold amid the global COVID-19 health crisis in the spring.

And while the TV judge, 41, is by no means thankful about the pandemic, she has tried to see the bright side to the delay.

'[The finalists] have had a long time, I hope that they’ve not become too complacent!' she said in a chat prior to the series recommencing this month. 'I hope that they’ve used this time to really think about what they want to do and to think about how to maximise the moment.

'So yeah, this could work in their favour.'

The Mis-Teeq singer mused on this further, adding: 'I think it’s real interesting because there’s a few acts that have got potential to blow up and have a huge moment on the show.

'There’s so much more meaning in everything now after all we’ve been through as a country. It’s given it a whole other layer, another level, if they pitch it right, they get the right song, they’re going to tap into the emotion of the nation.

'And I think we could see some really powerful moments on the show, fingers crossed!'

Alesha admitted she's 'been looking forward to getting back to BGT' but that her and her fellow judges Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell and David Walliams 'have all been texting each other saying how much we’ve all missed each other and just genuinely can’t wait to work together again'.

She went on: 'In a way it almost makes it even more special to be doing the show. I remember when BGT went out, at that time we all thought, “Wow, this is what people need. They need a bit of silliness and a bit of fun.”

'At that time, it was all doom and gloom in the country. When the show came on, it was like, “Oh, this is a nice little treat on a Saturday night.” Now I kind of feel, again, going into the semi-final shows, people need that little pick me up, a bit of joy and some light, you know?'

She added: 'I hope that they’ve used this time to really think about what they want to do and to think about how to maximise the moment. So yeah, this could work in their favour'
