Alexandra Burke hates being single and insists she wants to find the right man to settle down with.
Alexandra Burke hates being single.
While her family praise her for not needing a man, the 22-year-old singer admits she was reduced to tears when she recently went on holiday on her own.
She said: "My sister calls me the girl that never needs a man. She says, 'You may as well just marry yourself.' But I hate being alone. That's a different ball game.
"The other week I went away on holiday for five days to Morocco, and it's the first time I've been away by myself. I cried on the plane. But I went to the souk, I ate every night alone, and I thought, 'I can do this.'"
The 'Start Without You' hitmaker - who won Simon Cowell's pop star search show 'The X Factor' in 2008 - also revealed she was forced to move away from the area she grew up in after she won the competition.
Alexandra added: "Growing up, all I knew was the Caledonian Road in north London. But after I won 'X Factor' living there was difficult because of the kids. I remember once as I was driving in the gate they were trying to open the boot of my car, and then they started throwing stones. A week later I was gone.
"My mum said, 'You really should move somewhere greener', so I moved to Hertfordshire and I live in an area with a lot of old people so no one knows who I am. You just talk about your dogs."
