Alexandra: X-Factor exit delight

Alexandra Burke's delighted that she was once booted off The X-Factor.

The Jingle Bell Ball star auditioned 'way back' in 2005 but got the boot in the early stages from Simon, Louis and Sharon (Osborne).

She came back to win the competition in 2008 and says her earlier exit was a blessing in disguise.

Alexandra told You magazine, "I couldn't have coped then with the pressures heaped on me now, because I wasn't nearly mature or responsible enough to deal with the punishing work regime or the media interest."
