Alexandra Burke has reportedly split from her fiancé Josh Ginnelly.

She captioned the post at the time: "Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected.

They were having rows and realised it was better if they weren't together.

"My soul mate and my love asked me something that I could only have dreamt of. Being in love is one of the most magical feelings life has to offer.

"So grateful for this amazing man in my life who has supported my family and I through so much."

Alexandra and Joshua, a stage manager, had been dating since April 2016.

At the time, Alexandra said she hadn't had time to think about planning a wedding, yet alone having a baby.

"It's not for now, but of course it's every woman's dream to have children one day. Eventually we will, but it's not part of the plan at the moment. One day!" she told New! magazine.

The 30-year-old said she was just so busy, she couldn't focus on anything other than her career.

"It's been non-stop since Strictly started so I haven't had time to think about a wedding or planning," she admitted.
