She said: ‘When the weather’s nice, we like to go to the woods with our three rescue dogs. Obviously the dogs still need walking when it’s rainy, but we’re not as quick to get out of the house then.

‘If I could snap my fingers and go anywhere, it would be Cornwall to watch the dogs running in and out of the sea on a beautiful beach. I love the ocean.’
In 2013, Alesha admitted she had always had a penchant for pooches, when speaking about visiting a zoo to help free three young European brown bears, who had been living in poor conditions.
She told Daily Record: ‘I have always been a huge dog lover and that’s always been my main focus.

‘That made me open up to other animals and what they are experiencing and it just breaks your heart because once you start looking into it, it’s never ending. You never feel you can do enough.
‘Romania was really shocking. I was expecting it to be bad but it was far worse when I got there.
‘These bears had basically been living there for their whole lives, some of them 20 years, in cages you could barely swing a cat in with nothing so much as a tyre to chew or any fresh water.’
