No guilt for Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon never feels guilty about leaving her daughter.

The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who has 22-month-old Azura with boyfriend Azuka Ononye - doesn't think working women should feel bad about leaving their kids in the care of others while they focus on their careers.

Asked if she feels working mother's guilt, she said: "Don't judge me, but never, I mean, not at all.

"I miss Azura and I can't wait to see her, but I'm happy to be going to work and I want her to see me providing for her by doing something that I love.

"I think one of the biggest mistakes women are making is saying they feel guilty all the time - even if they don't. Because they make other women feel like they should be feeling guilty."

But the 36-year-old beauty also admitted juggling work and family life can be tough.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "I don't know if I'm coming or going at the moment. I'm not going to lie, juggling work, motherhood and life isn't easy. But we women are all in the same boat, right?"

Meanwhile, Alesha is more confident than ever and isn't upset about getting older.

She said: "Oprah Winfrey's philosophy about turning 60 was, 'Think about all the people in the world who never even got to 60.'

"My thirties have been by far my favourite decade - and I can only imagine the next one will be even better."
