Former winner of the ITV reality singing competition, The X Factor, Alexandra Burke has revealed how she has managed to lose weight and drop a dress size, after deciding to get herself on a diet and exercise more. Alexandra admitted that she made the decision to lose weight, after seeing Myleene Klass looking so good back in December of last year, encouraging her to get herself in shape.
Burke explained, "The first time I met Simon [Cowell] I was 16 and he asked to see my passport because he thought I was 25. I'm young and I want to show how much fun I can have. I started working out on 7 January. I saw pictures of Myleene Klass in Barbados over Christmas and I was like, 'Oh my God! How is she looking that good?' So I started doing loads of classes at the gym.”
She added, "I was a size 10, but now I'm an 8-10 and my arms, legs and bum have lifted. I genuinely feel great now." It was recently reported that Alexandra Burke has been dating Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermaine Defoe but, as of yet, neither of them have confirmed or denied the romantic link.
