Alexandra Burke - Alexandra Burke Wants Parents To Reunite

Alexandra Burke wants her parents to get back together.

The 23-year-old singer's mother and father separated in 1992, but they have grown to be friends in recent months and the 'Elephant' star would love it if they reconciled.

She said: ''My whole life is like the soap 'EastEnders'. The Burke family - if we had one of those reality shows, people would be shocked. We're crazy.

''But now we can have Christmases, birthdays without any bickering. I love seeing my parents together. I even said to them, like, a month ago, 'Why can't you guys just get back together?' ''

Alexandra - who shot to fame after winning UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' in 2008 - now lives in Hertfordshire, East England and says she made the decision to leave her native London after being ''driven out'' by abusive neighbours.

She explained: ''I bought a flat round the corner from where I grew up. I wanted to be close to my mum. And all these kids would start on me. It was horrible; they were throwing stones at my windows. I lasted six months there after winning the show.

''I did get driven out, if I'm completely honest. My mum didn't want me to go, but I was like, 'Why should I sit here and take this grief?' So I moved to Hertfordshire, where it's peaceful and nobody knows who I am and there's loads of old people.''
