Alexandra Burke Bowled Over By Birthday
'Bad Boys' singer Alexandra Burke celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday (25.08.09) with a host of celebrity friends at a bowling-themed bash at London's Shoreditch House.
Alexandra Burke celebrated her 21st birthday with a star-studded bowling party yesterday (25.08.09).
The 'X Factor' winner - who is preparing to release her highly-anticipated debut LP this October - spent the evening at London's exclusive Shoreditch House with friends, family and celebrity pals.
A source said: "The bowling party was all Alexandra's idea - she just loves 10-pin bowling.
"It was a fantastic night. Alex and the label opened up a £10,000 bar tab so everyone could really let their hair down."
However, they will be expected to do it again later this year when Alexandra throws a second birthday bash.
The source explained: "Like the Queen, Alexandra is actually having two birthday parties - one last night and one in October to coincide with the new album launch. She decided to treat herself to a Stella Mccartney outfit, Christian Louboutin heels and a Tiffany ring."
A source said: "Alex was in tears. Things just couldn't be better for her."
Girls Aloud singer Cheryl - who was the singer's mentor on the TV talent show - wished Alexandra a happy birthday over the phone and splashed out £5,000 on a luxurious holiday.
The generous star has booked Alexandra in to the Constance Lemuria resort in the Seychelles - the same exclusive hotel she honeymooned at with her soccer husband Ashley Cole in 2006.
Music mogul Simon treated Alexandra to a £7,000 Chanel handbag, while Australian star Dannii sent her a grey Tabitha bag.
