ALESHA Dixon's cheating ex husband MC Harvey has claimed that she forgave him and they secretly met-up at his stepdad's funeral.
The 42-year-old star was left devastated when she caught the loverat, who she married in 2005, cheating with fellow musician Javine Hylton.
She has spoken openly about the betrayal in the past, admitting that she felt "lost and empty" and didn't eat for days after the scandal on Piers Morgan's Life Stories in 2014.
But Harvey, 41, has now spoken out about their relationship – saying that his ex-wife and her now-husband Azuka Ononye showed up to pay her respects at his stepfather Ray's funeral in 2017.
He shared: "Four years ago my stepfather died, and she came to my mother’s to pay her respects with her partner. Isn’t that unbelievable?
"When my stepfather died the whole of South London was in my mum's house; my mum knows all the bad boys, she's a youth worker, so was he, so they were very connected with the community.
"When Alesha turned out with her partner, I went to the boys: 'Look after them, show them love', and the boys were like: 'One hundred percent.’ That’s because she was here for Ray (his stepfather), and that within itself is respect."
Harvey added that generous Alesha even splashed out £500 on flowers for his mum to put in Ray's funeral car.
The former couple later had an emotional phone call where they wished each other well in life.
Speaking on the Anything Goes With James English podcast, Harvey detailed: "Alesha then rang me, six months before I met my wife, and she said:, ‘I just want you to be happy, Harv.’
"I apologised to her about what happened in the past, we had a mature conversation. We talked about our kids, I said to her: ‘Your kids are beautiful.’ She said: ‘Your kids are beautiful.’"
He revealed that the Britain's Got Talent judge told him he was her first love, with the pair wishing each other good luck as the conversation drew to an end.
Harvey shared that Alesha would be "so proud" to see how happy and settled he is with his wife and kids now, adding: "What was bad was when she came to the back of my mum's garden, and me and her just sat in the back of the garden, I'm grieving and we spoke.
"One of my mates who's grown up with me who's grown up around her was like: 'This is f***ing weird, it’s almost like you two haven’t left each other', because it was so normal to talk. It was so normal to chat."
Elsewhere in the chat, he credited Alesha with "saving his life" by getting him away from gangs – and claimed that she is one of just two women that he has loved.
Harvey shares 12-year-old Angel with ex Javine, and four-year-old Persia with his second wife Ghamzeh Mahdizadeh – who he reportedly split from in 2016.
In 2019, Harvey welcomed son Koa, but has not publicly named his partner, although she features regularly on his Instagram page.
Meanwhile, Alesha married Azuka in 2017 and together they share seven-year-old Azura, and 20-month-old Anaya.
