Alesha Dixon reveals the important life-changing lesson her mum taught her
Singer, writer and Britain’s Got Talent judge, Alesha Dixon, 39, has just released her first children’s book about a mixed-race girl who’s a secret superhero – and we’ve got a feeling it’s going to be inspiring young people all across the country.
And while the story might be aimed at helping the younger generation, the star recently shared with us some wisdom that we can certainly relate to ourselves.
Speaking toWoman & Homeexclusively for our May issue, the formerStrictly Come Dancingjudge revealed that her most important life lesson came from a literary hero of her own – with a little help from her mum, too.
“What I’ve learnt is to be in the now”, she told us. “It’s something my mum has always said to me, and when I read a book called, I realised just how important it is.”
Refreshingly honest, Alesha admitted that her overactive mind can sometimes keep her awake at night. She said, “I’m a very deep thinker and I find it very hard to switch off at night, so I usually have to put on an episode ofFriendsor listen to some music before bed.”
It’s not just us then!
But it seems the multi-talented star has found a happy balance between life and work. “Success now is waking up in the morning and being comfortable in my own skin. You can go to a job that pays well, but if you’re not happy in yourself, or if you’re not grateful for what you have, it means nothing.”

On the subject of her favourite judge she admitted: “Amanda [Holden] and I have a very strong female friendship now – we’ve really got each other’s backs and that’s lovely – but believe it or not, I’d have to say it’s Simon [Cowell].
