Earlier this year, Alexandra had discussed her wedding plans revealing she and stage manager Joshua weren't planning to marry until 2020 because of work commitments.

She also revealed they had no plans for a baby, despite eventually wanting to start a family.

The daughter of Soul II Soul singer Melissa Bell, Alexandra rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor in 2008, which led her to release the Christmas number one song, Hallelujah.
