Alesha Dixon has never been one to shy away from showing off some skin, and the 2016 BRIT Awards was no different as she put on a very racy display.

She was joined by her boyfriend, Azuka Ononye, one of her dancers whom she first met in 2006.

The then 37-year-old singer oozed sex appeal in a revealing number while she posed on the red carpet at London’s O2 Arena with her partner Azuka Ononye, who was equally stylish in a burgundy velvet blazer. They tied the knot in 2017.

“I was kind of playing hard to get for about a year,” she revealed during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.

“And then I had the foot operation and I couldn’t walk and he was literally sleeping on the floor looking after me every day,” she added.

“I was just looking at him thinking, ‘That is for better or for worse isn’t it.’ I looked a state, he was sleeping on the floor because I was on the couch, I couldn’t even get up the stairs. If he can carry me to the toilet then he’s a keeper.”

They have two daughters, Azura Sienna Ononye (2013) and Anaya Safiya Ononye (2019).

“We met 10 years ago, and he was the first person that I’d met, that I knew that we could have children together because of our values, our morals, our thinking aligned… The thought of having children with someone who could do something toxic or show them something toxic that I saw as a child frightened me more than anything in the world,” Dixon said in a podcast interview with Giovanna Fletcher.

In June 2005, Dixon married English rapper MC Harvey. The couple divorced in November 2006 following Harvey’s affair with singer Javine Hylton. She talked about the traumatic scandal in an interview with Express.

“I didn’t eat for a few days. I just remember sitting on the floor in my house. You ask those questions: Why? What have I done wrong?”

Turning heads at the 2016 BRIT Awards, the “Britain’s Got Talent” judge put her midriff, cleavage, and endless legs on full display in a risqué ensemble comprised of a plunging sheer top and a high-low skirt.

A gold-embellished military-style jacket by Emilio Pucci added a funky and somewhat modest element to the look.

Alesha drew further attention to her chest with a three-tier necklace by Bulgari. She stuck to the black-and-gold theme of her look by accessorizing with a few striking gold rings, a pair of hoop earrings, and gold heels.

To up the ante, she styled her short hair in an edgy quiff and wore a slick of red lipstick and heavy mascara.
