She waltzed her way through three series, but Alesha Dixon has revealed she's hanging up her dancing shoes and leaving Strictly Come Dancing.
The singer, who won the show as a contestant with her dance partner Matthew Cutler in 2005, has said she is moving on to new ventures in 2012.
In a statement she said: "After three incredible years on the Strictly Come Dancing judging panel I have decided that it is time to move on.
"Strictly Come Dancing will always hold a special place in my heart as it has been such an amazing experience, both as a winning competitor and as a judge.
"I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the show, the production team, my fellow judges, and a very special thank you to the fans for their support.
"Music is my great passion and the reason for the other incredible opportunities that have come my way and I am looking forward to getting back into the studio and focusing on making a new record in 2012."
Alesha joined the show in 2009 when she replaced veteran Strictly judge Arlene Phillips - a move that caused some controversy at the time, with the BBC being accused of 'ageism'.
The company has wished her luck and says it will announce the new line-up "in due course".
