Strictly Come Dancing winner spotted with soccer star in London

Alesha Dixon is dating Aston Villa ace John Carew.

The Strictly Come Dancing winner has been spotted with the footballer at a string of London restaurants in recent weeks.

And insiders say things are going well.

‘She’s so lovely and lights up every room she walks into. It’s great she’s found someone who makes her smile,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘He’s a gentle giant. He’s a massive bloke, but a really nice guy.’

In 2006 Alesha, 29, split from So Solid crew rapper MC Harvey, 28, after he cheated on her with Javine Hylton, 26.

She is currently in the process of divorcing him.

Alesha’s publicist has confirmed that while ‘it’s early days’ she is dating John.
