The first series of Alesha’s Street Dance Stars was won by Lil Diamonds on the CBBC channel in Autumn 2011. It was recently announced that Alesha’s Street Dance Stars auditions opened for the 2012 series.

Since the initial series Alesha Dixon went on to become a judge on Britain’s Got Talent on ITV,  although she will be returning to the BBC for the new series of her self-titled street dance show.
