Nothing gets in the way of glamour for Alesha Dixon, so out went the crutches when she hit the red carpet at Wednesday’s National Television Awards.

The Strictly Come Dancing judge said she required the crutches after recently undergoing a bone correction procedure.

“I had an operation about five weeks ago so I’m nearly recovered now. I should be on two crutches really, but they’re not very glamourous are they?”

Alesha also revealed her latest venture – working with Jay Sean for her new single Every Little Part Of Me: “We shot the video in Miami before Christmas. The single isn’t released until the 28th of February but Jay and I have been friends for years so we always talked about doing a colabo (sic).”
