Don’t Go Changing

Back before last Christmas, I was one of the first journalists to interview Alexandra Burke after she won the X Factor. The interview took place on the Monday following the final and, quite understandably, she was as excited as a kid on Christmas morning, speaking at a million miles an hour and clearly unable to take it all in. When we stopped filming she confessed she hadn’t slept since her win.

I remember thinking that I hoped she stayed as charming as she was then, although I wouldn’t have put money on it. Fame, particularly the instant variety, does funny things to people. As it happens, my worries were unfounded. Due to a bizarre scheduling mixup, I have interviewed her twice within the space of the last three weeks. Not only did she remember me (which is very rare, trust me), she was as down to earth and chatty as the first time we met. I suppose she’s not actually had a record out so she could yet change but this time I don’t think it’s likely.

  

Keep it real etc...
