Welwyn Garden City celebrity Alesha Dixon will be the subject of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories tonight (Friday).

Journalist Piers Morgan returns to ITV tonight (Friday) at 9pm with a seventh series of his hit biographical talk show.

In this first episode of three, Piers will be interviewing former Mis-Teeq singer and television presenter Alesha Dixon, as she opens up to about her life and career.

Filmed in front of a studio audience, the show looks back over the former Strictly Come Dancing champion and Britain’s Got Talent judge’s personal life.

The intimate and in-depth hour-long interview will discuss the former Monk’s Walk School pupil’s six years as a reality TV judge on Strictly and BGT and her ex-husband’s affair, and includes interviews with her friends, family and colleagues.

In this frank discussion Alesha opens about the trauma she experienced as a child and how, after finding fame with Scandalous garage band Mis-Teeq and as a solo artist with hit single The Boy Does Nothing, she lost her record contract and found out her husband was having an affair, in the space of a few weeks.

She also opens up to Piers about the backlash when she replaced Arlene Phillips on Strictly Come Dancing and how she’s now juggling motherhood with songwriting and appearing as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

The second episode of the series on Friday, September 12 will see Piers interviewing professional cricketer Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, as he reflects on the key role he played in England’s 2005 Ashes triumph and he tells how, after doctors advised him never to run again when he retired in 2010, he recently made a return to county cricket.
