Cheryl and Alesha Dixon wow in promo shots for new series of The Greatest Dancer

Cheryl throws a shape and looks forward to finding The Greatest Dancer on the latest TV talent contest from BBC1.

The singer and X Factor judge is limbering up with Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly judge Alesha Dixon for the show that starts in the New Year.

Cheryl, 35, said: “The great thing about The Greatest Dancer is we put the power into the audiences’ hands.” She’ll be a dance captain – alongside Glee actor Matthew Morrison and Strictly pro Oti Mabuse. They will whittle down acts who get through auditions.

Alesha, 40, will host the show with Ashley Banjo of dance troupe Diversity.
