Alesha Dixon "sick with worry" about brother after accident

UPSET: Alesha Dixon

A SOURCE close to Alesha Dixon's family has told 'The Sun' newspaper that the beauty's half-brother John Lonergan, 30, was in the passenger seat when his best friend James Bartell, 29, crashed into trees, tragically killing himself last Sunday (August 28).

38-year-old Dixon is said to be "sick with worry" about her brother, who is apparently recovering from broken ribs and a broken collar bone after the accident in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

The source, who identifies as a friend of the family, went to to say:

“It is just so tragic. It was a straight road so it’s baffling how they crashed. I don’t know if something ran out on to the road and they had to swerve. We just don’t know. The car somehow lost control. It was an open road and it was day time, so it’s just puzzling.

"They were good friends, they would spend a lot of time together. John is devastated.”
