Alexandra Burke is reportedly dating West Ham footballer Darren Randolph despite saying she'd "never be with one again" following her split from Angus MacDonald last year

Alexandra Burke is reportedly dating a West Ham goalie and the new couple seem to be hitting it off despite the singer saying she would never fall for a footballer again.

The former X Factor winner met Darren Randolph only last month, but according to reports, she is already helping him decorate his home.

A source also claimed the 32-year-old hired a chef to cook a slap-up meal for the footballer’s 34th birthday on Wednesday.

"It’s early days and Alexandra has deliberately taken things incredibly slowly," the insider told The Sun.

"They’ve had a series of dates but not been able to meet up as much as they would have wanted due to her hectic work schedule and the Covid restrictions."

The source went on to say that while the star was "reluctant" to jump back into another relationship, she apparently couldn’t resist Darren’s charms.

They claimed: "Alexandra was extremely reluctant to date another footballer but Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming.

"He wore her down!" the publication added.

Alexandra only split from Rotherham United player Angus MacDonald in October.

The romance stayed on course for just over a year, but at 15 months, the Broken Heels songstress decided to call it quits on their relationship.

The source also claimed that things are currently going "really well" between Alexandra and Darren.

They’re supposedly just happy trying to fit each other in around their busy work schedules too.

West Ham are currently competing in the Premier League, and Alexandra is doing rehearsals for her new West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

What's more, Alexandra is reportedly also "making [Darren’s] bachelor pad more homely and adding a much-needed feminine touch".

Daily Star has contacted Alexandra's representatives for comment.
