Alexandra Burke has got a new man in her life: American singer Marcus Anthony, who is Jamie Foxx’s protege.
The 23-year-old X Factor winner took him to the Cosmopolitan Awards for their first date, the Mirror reports.
Alex, who failed to impress on the X Factor when she took over judging duties for Kelly Rowland, seems smitten with her new man, although they got off to an awkward start.
She said: “We met at a Michael Jackson concert and he thought I was a backing dancer.”
“It was only later on that he Googled me and he found out the truth.”
That hasn’t put her off, however, as she added: “It’s early days but Marcus is brilliant and gorgeous; I really like him. This is our very first official date. Watch this space…!”
We will do!
