Irish goalie Darren Randolph has proved that his new girlfriend Alexandra Burke is a keeper by sharing photos from a romantic getaway.

The West Ham United footballer confirmed his relationship with the X Factor winner earlier this month.

Now, the couple have taken things to the next level by having a mini holiday and going on a double date with some pals.

The pair seemed to be having a ball, with Darren posting a photo of the four friends smiling together to his Instagram account.

He captioned the post: “Great company, great food, great friends #roadtrip.”

Alexanda replied in the comments saying: “The best time.”

The singer also shared some snaps from their romantic weekend, posting a photo of the loved-up couple going for a walk near a lake with their dogs.

They then rewarded themselves after their adventure with some drinks in bed before Alexandra headed back to rehearsals for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, in which she is set to play the role of the Narrator this summer.

Alexandra and Darren sparked dating rumours last month following the Hallelujah singer’s split from Rotherham United footballer Angus MacDonald in October after 15 months together.

The couple put the rumours to rest last week when Bray native Darren shared a selfie of the pair looking cosy in the back of a London cab as they headed out for some dinner.

He captioned the post: “London date night.”

A source previously told The Sun that “things are going really well” between the new couple.

“It’s early days and Alexandra has deliberately taken things incredibly slowly,” the insider revealed.

“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.”

The source continued: “Alexandra was extremely reluctant to date another footballer, but Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming.”

“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.”
