Last month, Alesha revealed she believes motherhood has changed her for the better saying that being a mother has made her more ‘sensible’.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge said giving birth to her two children made her tame her behaviour and become ‘a better person’.

In an interview with The Mirror, Alesha said: ‘Being a mum has made me a better person because I’m always mindful of my behaviour. 

‘Obviously there is still a rebellious side in me and I’m young at heart, but for the most part I’m quite sensible.’

She continued: ‘My children keep me grounded. Everything I’m doing now is to make sure they have a great future and to protect them.’

She also revealed that the best part about being a mum was the ‘cuddles’ she gets from her daughters and joked she sometimes finds herself ‘begging’ for a cuddle.
