Alesha holds the record for the highest average score in Strictly history with 36.5 points - and that's despite never achieving a perfect 40 point score for a single routine.

Since competing, Alesha sat on the Strictly judging panel alongside Len Goodman and co for three series from 2009-2011. During this time she also co-hosted Children in Need with Terry Wogan and Tess Daly. She currently presides over her judging duties on Britain’s Got Talent.
