Snubbed? Heidi sat out the last season of the show, appeared alongside Spice Girl Mel B, but returns in 2020; but apparently Mel B has not been reclaimed
Heidi tweeted: & # 39; It's official – I'll be back for #AGTChampions! I can't wait to be back at my favorite desk with @simoncowell @howiemandel @aleshaofficial @terrycrews to help crown the next @agt champion! #AGT. & # 39;
She followed this up with an answer to Alesha's tweet and wrote: & # 39; We're going to have so much fun @AleshaOfficial So excited to work with you! & # 39;
The news was also revealed in a tweet with AGT champion Shin Lim that was seen in a magic trick that predicted this year's line-up with a pack of cards.
Heidi, 46, and Mel B, 44, both sat at the AGT jury members of season 8-13 and decided to leave season 14. However, they participated in season 1 of AGT: The Champions.
BGT duties: Alesha has been a judge in the British Got Talent since the sixth season of the show, although until the most recent 13th season [depicted with David Walliams, Simon and Amanda Holden]
Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough took the place of Mel and Heidi for the most recent season of America & # 39; s Got Talent, but Heidi has apparently returned to the team for season 2 of The Champions.
The fact that Mel is not involved may be due to the fact that she moved to the UK after the Spice Girls 2019 reunion.
She has since joined ITV & # 39; s Celebrity Juice as a team judge.
Mel went to Twitter when the news was announced to congratulate Alesha on posting: & # 39; Congratulations darling, you'll have a great time, it's a great show to work with great people for my girl @ heidiklum. & # 39;
To which Alesha replied: & # 39; Thank you very much @OfficialMelB that means a lot! Big kiss honey! & # 39;
Alesha has meanwhile been a judge in the Got Got Talent since the sixth season of the show, although until the most recent 13th season.
She also participated in the panel for BGT: The Champions, which was broadcast on ITV last summer.
Like Simon, 59, appears as a panel member in both the British and American editions of the show, Alesha's appointment to AGT does not seem to jeopardize her place on the BGT panel – a move that went terribly wrong for Cheryl on The X Factor in 2011.
