BGT’s Alesha Dixon reveals which Disney villain Simon Cowell would be at Disneyland Paris 25th anniversary celebrations
Alesha Dixon took some time away from Britain’s Got Talent this week to enjoy some magical 25th anniversary celebrations at Disneyland Paris… but it didn’t stop her from having a gossip about Simon Cowell!
Famous faces Alesha Dixon, Stacey Solomon, Joe Swash, Louie Spence and Lydia Bright all flew to France with British Airways this week for a particulalry special trip to Disneyland Paris. The five celebrities joined forty children and adults from three London charities for the fun-filled day trip as they celebrated the park’s 25th anniversary.
This is the fourth year that British Airways and Disneyland Paris have teamed up to organise an outing direct from the Docklands. This year, children from Body and Soul, Fight for Peace and Oasis Children’s Venture joined the excitement.
Enjoying a break from filming the current series of BGT, Alesha chatted about her fellow judge Simon Cowell. When asked which Disney Villain Simon most closely resembles, Alesha admitted she doesn’t think he actually has what it takes to be one of the bad guys. Despite his grumpy persona, the celebrity revealed: “He’s actually a big softy and he has a really big heart.”
Alesha also took some time to reflect on her day at the theme park: “It’s absolutely amazing being at Disneyland Paris – seeing everyone’s faces and everyone is so excited to be here and there is something really genuine about it. I can’t believe it has been 25 years – where has the time gone- they have gone from strength to strength and it feels good being here as it is such a special place.
“The charities are incredible and the children that I have met so far have been so sweet. I’m so happy for them for a lot of them it is their first time –they are going through certain things in their life that and the fact that they get to come here and have fun and let go of all of that and just be kids is lovely and it has been a real pleasure to meet all of them.”
The former Strictly Come Dancing star shared her own inspirational advice for children on how they can achieve their goals. She said: “The most important thing is self belief. Never be afraid of hard work and when things don’t work out for any particular reason try and learn from it and become stronger as a result. The power of your attitude towards something will usually determine the outcome”.
Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
