Alexandra Burke has hit out at Cheryl Cole for allegedly ignoring her texts.
The X Factor winner claimed that she hasn't been in contact with her former mentor for more than a year and was surprised to recently receive a tweet from her.
The singer told the Daily Star on Sunday:
"I haven't heard anything from Cheryl for over a year and then she tweeted me publicly the other day, which I was really surprised about.
"I've texted her a few times but never heard anything back.
"I was surprised to hear from her on Twitter, which was very public.
"Don't get me wrong, it was great for her to get in touch and it was a very lovely message, but I would prefer to hear from her more privately and maybe go for a drink and catch up properly."
The Elephant singer, who once described Cole as "more than a mentor" also revealed that the contact stopped suddenly, adding:
"We kept in contact after the show but then it just stopped. You just don't know what is going on in other people's lives so you can't get mad if someone doesn't text you back. But of course it doesn't mean that I don't miss her. I miss her very much."
Burke also revealed that she is still in touch with Beyonc, after they famously performed a duet together during the 2008 X Factor final.
