Simon Cowell’s partner Lauren Silverman, 42, has denied claims that she had a bust-up with Alesha Dixon, 41. It comes after The Sun reported she had a backstage showdown with the Britain’s Got Talent judge over worries she had become too close to Simon.
The publication also claimed Alesha and Lauren remain friends and that Lauren and Simon have been getting on well with their son Eric, six.
They also suggested that the tense exchange between the pair was witnessed by several people during a break in filming before the coronavirus lockdown.

However, a source has informed MailOnline that claims of a spat between Lauren and Alesha are untrue.
They told the publication: “Alesha and Lauren are very good pals. They have literally never had a row.”

The star previously revealed how fatherhood has changed him and told the Daily Star: “Eric is absolutely incredible and so funny. It [being a father] is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Simon also said he hasn’t ruled out becoming a father again.
During an appearance on This Morning, Simon stated: “If you’d have asked me six years ago I would have probably gone, ‘I might have left this a bit too late,’ but then you go, ‘Oh how you could imagine him not being here.’
He added: “So whatever happens, happens.”
