The Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals got off to one hell of a start as Alesha Dixon dropped some big news… she’s pregnant!
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly made the announcement during the opening number for the first live show.
Alesha stood up and showed off her stomach as the Geordie duo sang: “And Alesha is expecting.”
“Over the moon, yes. Lovely place to celebrate it,” she beamed.
Fans were delighted with the news… and how she chose to break it.

The BGT judge has five-year-old daughter, Azura, with partner Azuka Ononye.
She has previously spoken of her desire for another child.
“Not a day goes by without me longing for another baby,” the 33-year-old told You magazine.
“I don’t know whether it will happen given my age but I adore the idea of a large family and I hope I will be lucky.
Massive congratulations to you, Alesha, you lucky woman!
