Fans threatened to stop watching the show as rumours spread that Simon Cowell would not let her sing her new single Stop on the ITV talent show.
So this afternoon, the judge decided to speak out on Twitter and explain what is really going on in response to one concerned fan.
“Hey darling, I haven’t been banned! I told you don’t believe what u read! Papers having a party right now! pmsl :),” she wrote.

However, according to The Sun, Alesha resorted to promoting her latest single at a series of low-profile gigs after being snubbed by ITV bosses.
“Alesha is disappointed but appreciates she can’t complain too loudly,” a source told the paper. “She knows how fortunate she is being on a show of BGT’s size so would never want to put that at risk.”

The claims came as the judge was branded racist by BGT viewers on Wednesday after describing the band Vox Fortura as “Four sexy chocolate men”.
She told them: “[You have] amazing voices, polished to perfection, that was sensational well done.”

While her comments may have been very complimentary, plenty of viewers took to Twitter to slam her choice of wording.
One wrote: “Can Alesha get away with saying what she said about @Vox_Fortura? Had it been any of the other judges, they’d be called racist #BGT.”

Another posted on the site: “How is it ok for Alesha to say ‘Chocolate men’? Isn’t that racist in every way possible? Disgusting. #BGT.”
