Strictly Come Dancing favourite Alesha Dixon has apparently received the support of an unlikely celebrity fan – the woman who stole her husband.

It seems Alesha has been tipped to win by her former friend and singer Javine Hylton, who is now pregnant by Alesha’s ex-husband MC Harvey, according to reports in The Mirror.

Javine told the paper that she wanted Alesha to be happy, saying: “Alesha is doing brilliantly and good on her. It might sound strange for me to say this but I genuinely want her to be happy and I really hope she wins.”

Alesha’s marriage to So Solid Crew star Harvey broke down last November after he was caught cheating with Javine, his co-star in West End musical Daddy Cool.

But despite her words of encouragement for Alesha, Javine doesn’t appear to feel guilty about her actions.

“I’d do it all again,” said Javine. “The only regret I have is the hurt I caused. But Harvey and I wouldn’t be together without hurting people.

“I’d probably be the first to say ‘bitch’ right now if I hadn’t been through it. But it crept up on us. The feeling was like a whirlwind… When you know, you know. Harvey’s definitely The One.”
