Alexandra wins the X Factor

Alexandra Burke won the X Factor last night and is now being tipped to be Christmas No 1 with her version of the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah.

The 20 year-old Londoner beat off competition from boy band JLS and teenage crooner Eoghan Quigg to scoop a £1m record deal and the backing of Simon Cowell who will be hoping that she can match the success of Leona Lewis.

Not known for containing her emotion Alexandra blubbed her way through most of the final and it looked like she was going to cry every last drop of moisture in her body before the end. If you're already feeling X Factor withdrawal symptoms don't worry as Burke will appear on Top of the Pops on Christmas Day.
