Alesha Dixon doesn’t worry about getting older and insists her thirties have been the best period of her life so far
Alesha Dixon feels “positive” about ageing. The 34-year-old star feels “better” than she ever has in her life and doesn’t let her previous troubles and worries bring her down while she goes about her life.
She said: “Since I turned 30, I’ve never felt better in my own skin. I don’t worry about the future because that will take care of itself.
“I don’t carry around past baggage because what’s that going to do for me? We only have now.”
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Alesha grew up in London’s Welwyn Garden City with her Jamaican father and British mother and although she was bullied at school for her race, the raven-haired beauty looked at her situation as a “unique” experience.
She added to Cosmopolitan magazine: “I had great friends at school but still some kids made racist comments. Thankfully my parents were very good at helping me understand the ignorance that lies within someone who could make such a remark.
“I was the only mixed-race girl in my school, but for me that was a positive thing; it made me unique. If it wasn’t for spending time with the black side of my family, perhaps I may have left like an outcast, but I never did.”
