Cheryl Cole's £5,000 holiday gift to birthday girl Alexandra Burke

Wednesday August 26, 2009

You'd think X Factor winner Alexandra Burke would've become used to her star-studded lifestyle by now.

The 21-year-old was apparently bowled over as she celebrated her milestone birthday, however, after receiving an array of extravagant gifts from her celebrity pals.

While Simon Cowell presented her with a £7,000 Chanel handbag, Alexandra's former mentor Cheryl Cole splashed out £5,000 on a luxurious holiday.

The Girls Aloud beauty has booked the singer into the Constance Lemuria resort in the Seychelles - the same exclusive hotel where she and her footballer husband Ashley Cole honeymooned.

Alexandra, who celebrated her birthday with an exclusive bowling party at London's Shoreditch House, was said to be overwhelmed by the gifts.

"Alex was in tears. Things just couldn't be better for her," a source close to her says.
