It’s that time again. The 2013 round of Britain’s Got Talent auditions kick off today in Cardiff – and judge Alesha Dixon has a few sartorial surprises up her sleeve. She'll be sharing them exclusively with ELLE throughout the series, which begins airing on 19 April.
'It was a bit of a logistical nightmare, because we film the auditions in January – when it's freezing – but Alesha's in a hot studio all day, and the program airs when we're getting closer to summer, so I wanted her in new-season looks,' her stylist, Katie Greengrass, tells us. 'Of course, they don't really start becoming available till January. So we don't get to work on her wardrobe until hair-raisingly close to the date of filming...'
Not that you'd ever know to look at her. Alesha loved so much sharing her BGT wardrobe with us last year that she’s back on board for another round, so follow us on Facebook and Twitter to make sure you have the first behind-the-scenes look.
Here's something to whet your sartorial senses: Alesha will wear one of the pieces on this rail during the live shows. Which one, we're not telling – yet. But you'll hear it here first!
