After Alexandra Burke won the fifth series of The X Factor, it seemed she could do no wrong and her singles and albums regularly topped the charts…
However, it seems that perhaps she’s “had a fall from grace” with fans given that it’s been revealed today that her latest single has failed to get into the top 100 charts this weekend.
