Alesha Dixon was featured on the cover of Sunday supplement, 'You' magazine, yesterday. In the accompanying feature written by celebrity hack, Chrissy Iley, the singer spoke candidly about her failed marriage, learning to be proud of her dysfunctional family, and how her confidence was buoyed by her Strictly Come Dancing victory. It's quite an interesting read. I've always admired Alesha for her unbridled ambition, tenacity, and the dignity she maintained throughout the whole Harvey/Javine affair. Things have been on the up and up for her ever since proving the old adage 'who laughs last, laughs best'. On the strength of her 'Strictly' appearance she was offered a lucrative record deal, and is due to release an album of new material this autumn. Not to mention her TV presenting gigs, and numerous advertising deals. I soooo love a good triumph over adversity story - good on ya girl. See the full feature attached. The pics are nice too.
