The X Factor winner has special bond with mentor
The Girls Aloud star, 26, led the Hallelujah singer to victory on the ITV show last year.
‘I’m very open with her and she is with me,’ says Alexandra, 21.
‘I tell her lots of things I wouldn’t even tell my sister.’
But Alexandra is still a little intimidated by boss Simon Cowell, 49.
‘That man is the nicest man on earth,’ she tells Marie Claire. ‘He rings me, and I’m like,”You’re Simon Cowell – why are you ringing my phone?”‘
Alexandra‘s new single Bad Boys hits the shops on 12 October.
