She's achieved what most people hope to accomplish in a lifetime.

And as she readies her 24th birthday, it's clear that Alexandra Burke has a lot to celebrate.

The former X Factor champion was pictured last night (Thursday) as she left Novikov Restaurant and Bar in London following a meal with family and friends.

Getting the celebrations underway, Alexandra wore a figure hugging silver dress which looked like it could have been painted on.

She allowed her dipped dyed locks which were styled in a side parting to cascade down her shoulders in loose curls.

Matching her makeup to the colour of her dress, she made her brown eyes sparkle with shimmer eyeshadow, and kept the rest of her application to a minimal.
