Alesha Dixon has revealed that she was not motivated by all that money thrown at her to move from Strictly Come Dancing to Britain’s Got Talent.

The 33-year-old star caused a lot of heart attacks in all those oldies who live for Strictly, when she revealed that she was doing a runner for Simon Cowell’s hit show BGT. And it wasn’t long before rumours started flying around that she was seduced by all those lovely 0’s she saw on her pay check.

Speaking to The Mirror, Dixon said

Money has never been a factor. If it was I’d have done so many crazy things over the years. I make decisions on what feels right and what excites me. I was going to leave Strictly anyway. Three years was respectable. It was time to move on. I wanted to do something fresh – I don’t want to be boxed in. I want to try new things. You only get one life, it’s not a rehearsal.
