IRELAND keeper Darren Randolph is rumoured to have found love with former X Factor star Alexandra Burke.

The 34-year-old West Ham player is believed to have been dating the Bad Boys singer (32) after they met last month.

A source said last night: “It’s early days and Alexandra has deliberately taken things incredibly slowly.

“They’ve had a series of dates but not been able to meet up as much as they would have wanted due to her hectic work schedule and the Covid restrictions.

“Alexandra was extremely reluctant to date another footballer but Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming. He wore her down!”

The couple have had to juggle their time with Alex rehearsing for a West End production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Darren needed on the bench as West Ham compete in the Premier League.

The source added: “Things are going really well. They’re super-happy seeing each other when they can, and she’s now helping him redecorate his mansion.

“She’s making his bachelor pad more homely and adding a much-needed feminine touch.”

On Wednesday Alexandra — winner of The X Factor in 2008 — posted on her Instagram a picture of Darren with a small cream cake and candle.

She wrote: “Happy Birthday to youuu Darren Randolph, hope you have the most amazing day!”
