Alesha Dixon reveals acting ambition

Alesha Dixon is hoping to land a "kick-ass" acting role.

The 37-year-old star - who rose to fame with girl band Misteeq - is hoping to land some acting work, before she starts judging the new series of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

She shared: "I have been doing the acting lessons for a few months. It's good. I do them when I can. I work one-on-one with an acting coach."

Alesha revealed she has been inspired by Margot Robbie's recent appearance in the 'Suicide Squad' movie, in which the Australian actress played the role of Harley Quinn.

The mother-of-one told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I love the idea of being in an action movie, something like Margot Robbie in 'Suicide Squad'. A kick-ass role.

"I also love the idea of being in a musical and also dramas, TV dramas, gritty dramas. I am very open-minded, really."

However, Alesha explained she is waiting for the right acting opportunity to present itself before she makes the move into TV and film work.

She said: "I am just waiting for that right role to come my way and yes, 100 percent, I'd love to give it a go."

Meanwhile, Alesha also shared her thoughts on fellow 'Britain's Got Talent' panellist Simon Cowell, admitting they have a "nice rapport."

The singer - who refers to her 'Britain's Got Talent' judging role as a "dream job" - said: "The more we work together, the more comfortable we are with each other. It is like your work family."
