Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has struck up a romance with Azuka Ononye, a professional dancer who was once in her backing team.
The 33-year-old, whose marriage to So Solid Crew's MC Harvey collapsed after he cheated on her, has finally found love again.
Friends say she has been spending all her time with Nigerian Azuka, known as Az, and the couple spent a long weekend at a five-star yoga retreat in Marbella, Spain last year.
"Everyone's really excited that Alesha has found love again. They get on brilliantly and Alesha likes the fact Az isn't a celebrity and is just a normal, down-to-earth guy. Alesha's obviously really busy with BGT but they see each other a lot."
The friend added that Alesha has put the past behind her and is focused on the future.
The couple first met in 2006 when Alesha was launching her solo music career after Mis-Teeq split up. Azuka was one of her backing dancers and they became friends.
