Alesha Dixon has slammed Joe Bugner, saying she thinks he is "either racist or he doesn't like women".

The outspoken former girl group singer turned reality TV judge hit out against the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestant for his treatment of her ex-Misteeq bandmate Sabrina Washington.

Speaking on TV show Live From Studio Five, she said: "Joe has been a bit mean to Sabrina...Well he is either racist or he doesn't like women, one of the two.

"He was calling her thick- she is far from it and he said she couldn't cook - she is a great cook!

"I thought, 'why is he picking on her, what's he playing at?' but she will not take any c**p from anyone."

Alesha has, however, previously voiced her concerns that Sabrina would struggle with the food in the Australian jungle for the ITV show, as she only ate junk food when they toured together.

Meanwhile heavyweight boxer Joe's estranged son, James, said he suffered at the hands of bullies because of his famous father.

James - who has only met his father a handful of times, after he walked out on his family when he was ten months old - said: "The bullying started when I was about nine. At first it was just verbal bullying, then it became physical.

"I'd get beaten up by them as them as though it was a status symbol to beat beta up Joe Bugner's son."
