Alexandra: X Factor contestants should "remain friends"
Alexandra Burke, speaking backstage at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball has spoken to presenters Roberto and Margherita Taylor about this year’s X Factor competition.
Having beaten JLS to win the reality show in 2008, Alexandra said that the current crop of hopefuls should learn from previous years.
"What’s very special is I’m still good friends with JLS. It was a magical year and I hope that every year learns something from us and remains friends".
Alexandra wasn't drawn to specifics on this year’s controversial figures like Cher Lloyd, Wagner and Katie Waissel, adding, "I don’t really believe anything until I hear it from the person’s mouth"
