I would love to be Strictly judge again next year says Alesha Dixon

Strictly Come Dancing will go on a live tour in January

Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon looks set to sign a new deal with the show after admitting she would like to return next year.

There had been rumours that the former Strictly winner would leave at the end of this series to focus on her music career. But Dixon has now said she would fit the show around her music.

"The series has gone so quickly, I'll be quite sad when it finishes. I would love to do Strictly again next year," she said.
"Obviously music is my first job, I'm making my second album and probably going to America but I can work round it so I can do both."
The 31year-old former Mis-teeq singer replaced 66 year-old Arlene Phillips on the judging panel for this year's series amid accusations of ageism by the BBC.
A BBC spokesman said: "Alesha has been doing a first-class job as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing and we look forward to having her back next year."
Strictly Come Dancing goes on a live tour next year starting at Manchester's MEN Arena on January 15th.
