British singer Alexandra Burke, who hit it big with her rendition of "Hallelujah" after appearing and subsequently winning the "X Factor" two years ago told reporters she is too busy with her career to fall in love.

Burke, 22, is hot stuff and has been known to rumble with the likes of Usher and rugby star Danny Cipriani but is flying solo at the moment.

Although she does admit she would love to have that someone special to cuddle up with for the holidays.

She explained: "I haven't got time for a boyfriend but love interests are exciting. Someone who can make me smile and understand my schedule. And shop for food with me and take me to see a movie."

Burke said she is so busy she doesn't even get to see her family that much, which she admits is very difficult.

"I miss my family and hope to buy a place near them at some point in the future when the fuss dies down.

"I spend so much time flying to Los Angeles or Paris or Tokyo or Sweden that when I get back to London I curl up with my pink teddy called Family - because they gave him to me when I was auditioning for 'The X Factor' - and my Yorkshire terrier and watch my box set of 'Friends'," she told You magazine.
