Alesha Dixon has been immortalised in biscuits.

A likeness of the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge’s features have been sculpted by food artist Nathan Wyburn, who spent three days using over 644 biscuits including McVitie’s Chocolate Digestives, Hobnobs and Rich Teas and the ‘Lipstick’ hitmaker is very tempted to tuck into her portrait.

She said: “I have been a fan of Nathan’s work since watching his debut on the show in 2011. His unique talent is the exact reason why the nation loves ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. It was very surreal to see myself created entirely out of McVitie’s biscuits... I wonder if it’s still edible?”

A short film has been created showing Nathan - who made it to the semi-finals of the ITV competition in series five – working on the project, which was commissioned as part of McVitie’s Golden Moments campaign, which aims to spread stories of positivity and fun across the nation including the opportunity to win money-can't-buy experiences such as tickets to the live Britain’s Got Talent Final.

The artist had a great time working on the portrait because he’s such a biscuit fan.

He said: “The best part of making art like this is getting to work with your favourite snacks and treats... and who doesn’t love a biscuit!? I loved being on the show all those years ago, so I jumped at the chance to work on creating this bespoke artwork of the beautiful Alesha Dixon – she can now enjoy being celebrated in delicious McVitie’s biscuits!”

Exclusive Golden Moments packets of McVitie’s Chocolate Digestives, Hobnobs and Jaffa Cakes will be available in major retailers across the UK.
