Singer Alexandra Burke has addressed claims she was left feeling down after hearing her Celebrity: SAS Who Dares Wins had believed she was a "favourite" of Ant Middleton.
The star who found fame on The X Factor is competing alongside the likes of Ulrika Jonsson and Kerry Katona on the hit programme.
However, during an appearance on The One Show this evening, Alexandra was keen to shut down claims that she had been favourite by hardman Ant Middleton.
After being quizzed by host Alex Scott, Alexandra said: "I can absolutely just reassure people that there is no favouritism on this show at all, whatsoever."
The Bad Boys songstress continued: "I read that article and it really upset me, I was like 'really?' because you have your microphones on at every single given moment.
"They hear everything you're doing, seeing everything you're doing and there is no favouritism so I just want to put that to bed and just say that, that did not happen at all."
Before erupting into laughter, the London born star said: "I wish I had some favouritism because I broke my ribs for crying out loud."
Discussing her time on the programme, Alexandra continued: "That whole experience, it was amazing – even talking about it and watching it, I get sweaty palms I won't lie.
"Reliving all those moments again, it doesn't bring back the most tremendous memories, it does make me really nervous talking about it."
Alexandra had been surrounded by speculation suggesting that her co-stars on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins were not happy due to her relationship with Ant Middleton.
Viewers were left shocked when Ant referred to Alexandra by her surname, rather than her number that is normally used to address recruits before going on to say she was the strongest recruit.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said: "Ant appeared to take a shine to Alexandra on SAS and it didn't go unnoticed by the show's stars and the crew.
"The show is known for being gruelling and incredibly tough — and Ant is known for never going easy on anyone."
The source continued: "But from the word go the others thought he treated Alexandra differently.
"During filming, he would be seen taking her to one side for a chat and, at points, they'd even take their microphones off so no one could hear what they were saying.
"Some of the other celebs complained that she was getting special treatment."
