Alexandra Burke's boyfriend not jealous of sexy dancing

Alexandra Burke's boyfriend doesn't mind her getting up close and personal with Gorka Marquez on "Strictly Come Dancing" because he's used to seeing her kiss other men.

The 29-year-old singer has admitted her beau Josh Ginnelly doesn't bat an eyelid when she rubs up against the professional dancer in their raunchy routines for the ballroom and latin show because he's used to seeing her lock lips with two men a night in "Sister Act".

Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, she said: "Gorka is a brilliant teacher and probably one of the only people I've met with more energy that me. We trained 10 hours a day for the paso and doing him proud meant everything to me.

"It's a good thing that my boyfriend is used to seeing me on stage with other men - when I first met him I was kissing two guys a night in "Sister Act" - because I hope Gorka and I get the chance to dance many, many more [weeks]."

But it's not just Gorka Alexandra wants to make proud as she is also pouring everything into the competition for her late mother Melissa Bell, who died in August aged just 53.

Alexandra Burke gets emotional on Strictly Come Dancing

She said recently: "My being on the show was a dream of hers, as well as mine, so doing the best I can on Strictly means a lot to me. My mum was my biggest critic. And she has turned me into a perfectionist; everything I do is for her. So when I step on to that dance floor on Saturday night I want to do the best I can and make her proud."
