SHE maybe a celebrity but WGC dancing star Alesha Dixon is all heart.
Strictly Come Dancing's newest judge has adopted her second dog from RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms.
Staff were "delighted" to let Alesha, who won the glittering BBC One dancing show back in 2007, take home Daisy, a tri-coloured crossbreed.
Alesha, a former Monk's Walk pupil and Mis-Teeq starlet, said: "I took a drive up to RSPCA Southridge in July as I was on the lookout for a companion for my dog Roxy [who she adopted in October 2006].

"At the moment she is in the process of being house trained and is responding really well.
"She is a little darling."
A spokesman for the Packhorse Lane animal centre said down-to-earth Alesha was very good with dogs.
She added: "Alesha is a lovely girl, very polite and unassuming.
"She absolutely loves animals and we were more than happy to place the second dog with her after she first adopted from us."
