Alexandra Burke 'Cheryl Cole Ignored My Texts'
She says she was surprised to get tweet from former X Factor mentor...
The former winner of The X Factor told the Daily Star Sunday that she was surprised to get a public tweet from her former mentor recently, considering that she had not responded to personal messages.
She said: "I haven't heard anything from Cheryl for over a year and then she tweeted me publicly the other day, which I was really surprised about. I've texted her a few times but never heard anything back.
"I was surprised to hear from her on Twitter, which was very public. Don't get me wrong, it was great for her to get in touch and it was a very lovely message, but I would prefer to hear from her more privately and maybe go for a drink and catch up properly.
"We kept in contact after the show but then it just stopped. You just don't know what is going on in other peoples' lives so you can't get mad if someone doesn't text you back. But of course it doesn't mean that I don't miss her. I miss her very much."
And Alex - who had the midweek No 2 single with her new release Elephant - revealed that she was still in touch with Beyoncé following their memorable duet in the 2008 X Factor final.
Alex was recently revealed to be dating footballer Jermain Defoe.
