Alexandra Burke: 'Cheryl Cole ignores my texts'

The Elephant star has admitted that her former mentor won't reply to her texts.

Although the Girls Aloud star was Alexandra's mentor on TV series X Factor, it seems she hasn't kept in contact.

'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,' said Burke to the Daily Star Sunday.

'I was surprised to hear from her on Twitter, which was very public,' continued 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,' continued the 23-year-old. 'You just don’t know what is going on in other people’s 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,' admitted Burke. 'I miss her very much.'
