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].
