Alesha Dixon has one of the most incredible stories of any star,
yet she remains an enigma. Behind the fabulous smile and signature
laugh is a private woman whose childhood was blighted by domestic
violence, poverty and a lack of confidence. As a beautiful young
woman, she has struggled to overcome professional failure and the
devastating effect of her husband's infidelity. The UK's leading
celebrity biographer Sean Smith has travelled to her home town to
uncover the truth about her upbringing, her unconditional love for
her mother, her loyalty to her extended family, her feud with her
elder brother and her unsettled relationship with her Jamaican
father, who left home for good when she was four. He discovers a
sensitive and secretive woman, who managed to keep her long-term
relationship with a member of one of the country's best-known boy
bands hidden from public scrutiny. For the first time that love
affair can now be revealed. He examines the circumstances that led
to the break-up of her marriage to rapper MC Harvey and the effect
that unhappy time has had on her life. Aleshadescribes a
roller-coaster career that began when she was 'discovered' at a
dance class in Central London. She achieved huge early success with
Mis-Teeq, who had seven consecutive top ten hits before their
record label went bust. Her subsequent solo career stalled when she
was dropped by Polydor before her debut album was even released,
but she turned things around with a spectacular victory on Strictly
Come Dancing. Sean Smith lays bare her subsequent TV career,
including the row over her appointment as a judge on the programme,
as well as her triumphant switch to Britain's Got Talentin 2012.
Aleshais the dramatic and uplifting account of her journey from a
humble start in life and how she overcame all obstacles in her way
to become an inspiration to women everywhere.
