She said in a recent interview that she 'turns into a Beast' when she put on heels and gets on stage.

But despite belting out her best hits last night as she performed with Dionne Warwick in London, Alexandra Burke left a lot to be desired in an outfit which did nothing to flatter her slim figure.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra wore a dress which featured a plunging sheer black lace top and a full pink skirt – an overall outfit which made her appear much bigger than she actually is.

The 23-year-old singer teamed the dress with silver earrings, and wore her black hair slicked back into a quiff.

In a recent interview with Javari.co.uk, Alexandra said she finds that she really gets into her element when she's on stage.

She said: 'I’ve been training in heels since the age of 14. My sister once said to me: ‘If you really want to be a superstar like Beyonc, you have to be able to dance in heels.

'When I put on heels it changes everything about me and I turn into that Beast.'

And last night Alexandra achieved one of her life's aims as she performed alongside singing legend Dionne Warwick.

Before the performance, Alexandra wrote on her Twitter page: 'About to perform with Dionne Warwick… So nervous x'
