Strictly Come Dancing 2020: Alesha Dixon ‘returning for Christmas special’ after leaving show nine years ago

A Strictly Come Dancing legend is reportedly returning to the programme just in time for Christmas, with Alesha Dixon set to return for the festive special.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge left the BBC show nine years ago, but could be set for a welcome return on Christmas Day.

Alesha first made a big impression on the show 13 years ago. The former Mis-Teeq star won the show as a contestant in 2007, before joining the panel as a judge in 2009, replacing Arlene Phillips. She left the show in 2012.

As The Daily Star reports, she’ll have a big part to play in a new-look festive episode this year.

The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special will be a little different in 2020 as a result of the pandemic.

Previous years have seen celebrity contestants take to the floor with professional dancers in a bid to be crowned Christmas champions. Last year Debbie McGee won the contest with partner Kevin Clifton.

However, as new couples won’t be allowed to dance together due to the restrictions, instead fans are getting Strictly: The Christmas Countdown – a look back at the top 25 most memorable routines ever to be performed on the show.

Alesha is reportedly set to commentate on the special, which is set to feature highlights of the past 16 years.

It comes after Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse were crowned Strictly Come Dancing 2020 winners in Saturday’s final.

It’s not just Strictly that Alesha is set to star on over Christmas either.

The singer is performing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas on the Britain’s Got Talent festive special with pianist Tokio Myers, who won the show in 2017. has reached out to Alesha’s representatives for comment.

Strictly: The Christmas Countdown airs on December 25 at 4.45pm on BBC One.
