Huge congratulations are in order as Alexandra Burke and her boyfriend of two years Josh Ginnelly are engaged.

The singer took to Instagram to share the exciting news with her fans.

Alexandra posted a photo with “I said yes!” written on the palm of her hand. The Strictly Come Dancing finalist also showed off her dazzling engagement ring in the photo.

She wrote, “18-12- 17 I said YES! Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected. My soul mate and my love asked me something that I could only have dreamt of.”

The Broken Heels singer gushed about her relationship, sharing that being in love is one of the most magical feelings ever.

 

18-12- 17  I said YES! Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected. 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. We decided to keep this between us for a while to enjoy this special moment and that’s why we haven’t said anything… Something so amazing honestly felt so overwhelming because there was only one person I wanted to call when it happened. I know she is smiling and very happy for us both – because little did I know she knew about it.  For those who guessed and have left such beautiful messages – thank you. Josh is someone who makes me so happy and I’ve never felt this kind of love before. Here’s to an amazing future that’s filled with love, joy and so much happiness. I love you Joshua Ginnelly. I can’t wait to see what our future brings and what God provides for us xxx

Rumours about the 29-year-old’s engagement have been circulating for the past few weeks, but Alexandra explained why she didn’t share the news straight away.

“We decided to keep this between us for a while to enjoy this special moment and that’s why we haven’t said anything.”

Unfortunately, there was one person missing from the celebrations- Alexandra’s mum, who sadly lost her battle with cancer last year.

Let's be honest – one of the biggest moments in X Factor history was the duet between Beyoncé and Alexandra Burke back in 2008.

Between Bey's vocals and Alexandra's hilarious bawl-face, it was definitely a moment to remember…. but for all the wrong reasons for the lads from JLS.

According to a recent interview, the act, which went head to head against Alexandra before she was ultimately crowed the winner, were furious that their fellow contetant was paired with an international superstar in the finale.

Reflecting on the atmosphere backstage at the time, Aston Merrygold said: "I was baffled. I was so baffled. At the time, I was 19 and I was absolutely fuming – behind closed doors I was fuming. Like, Beyoncé – are you kidding?!"

Speaking on BUILD Series LDN, he continued: "I was fuming. Listen, Westlife were amazing at the time and we had one of the biggest songs ever, but we were like, ‘How’s she got Beyoncé?"

“No disrespect to Westlife at all, but we were like, ‘Why didn’t we get Beyoncé?’" he admitted.

Why aren't we surprised?!
