Liza Minnelli may replace Strictly's Alesha Dixon

Thursday January 28, 2010

Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon could be replaced by cabaret legend Liza Minnelli in a future series, it has been reported.

BBC executives are apparently due to meet with 31-year-old Alesha next week to discuss her future on the panel.

Sources say that 63-year-old entertainer Liza would be a "real coup" for the show if the plan to hire her went ahead.

"Alesha got off to a very shaky start but did improve. Despite this, her future is believed to be hanging by a thread," the source continues.

“Liza has international appeal and real star billing. She is a singer and dancer, and Hollywood through and through.

“Her experience in the showbiz industry would be a real coup – plus she has the personality to match."

A BBC spokesperson has not yet been available for comment.
