Former 'X Factor' winner says Cheryl Cole and Mel B will "get on great" when they join the panel of the ITV singing competition

Alexandra Burke thinks Cheryl Cole and Mel B will "get on great" on 'The X Factor'.

The 'Bad Boys' singer, who was guided to victory on the ITV talent show by Cheryl in 2008, can't wait to see the former Girls Aloud and Spice Girls stars on the panel together in the new series.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I think they are going to get on great. It's going to be amazing because Mel is such a splendid women and her energy with everyone else is going to be fire. I think it's going to be amazing."

Alexandra has taken over the iconic role of Rachel Marron in the smash hit musical adaptation of 'The Bodyguard' in London's West End and she reveals 'X Factor' boss Simon Cowell urged her to star in the stage production some time ago.

The 25-year-old singer said: "He actually told me to do the show two years ago. He said, 'I think you should do The Bodyguard', even before I started out, and I said that I just really want to do my album now. And he said to me, 'I think it will be an amazing experience for you.'

"It's funny he said that a few years ago and I'm here today. He'll love that he's right again! He's a wise man and I have a lot of respect from him."

Alexandra is on stage in 'The Bodyguard' musical at London's Adelphi Theatre. For tickets and information visit
