Alexandra Burke has shared another loved-up photo with boyfriend Darren Randolph as her birthday celebrations extended into the weekend.

The singer and the Republic of Ireland and West Ham goalkeeper have been inseparable this week as they marked the star’s 33rd birthday.

While Randolph is enjoying some downtime in London with his girlfriend, he has repeated his commitment to Ireland and added that he’s fit and training. Ireland manager Stephen Kenny did not select the player for the three forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

“A lot of people asking if I've retired from international football,” he said on Instagram. “I haven't, I'm fit and training I just wasn't selected. Long time to go before I choose to retire.”

As he returns to club football, Randolph took the time to make sure his girlfriend’s birthday was a special one.

On Wednesday the couple celebrated with a slap-up meal at an upmarket London hotel.

Alexandra wrote: “speechless and my heart is feeling so full. Thank you my love @_darrenrandolph for making my birthday so special.”

Darren, too, turned to social media to wish his girlfriend a special day. “Happiest of birthdays to this (MY) queen! Hope you have an amazing birthday gorgeous. You deserve it all.”

The couple’s romance appears to be flourishing since they first went public with their relationship earlier in the summer.

The singer is currently starring in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in London’s West End.
