Burke: My second album jitters

Alexandra Burke has admitted she's "feeling the pressure" about bringing out her second album.

The Elephant singer, 23, recently spent a fortnight on holiday on the Caribbean Island of St Vincent - but found it difficult to fully switch off.

She wrote in her Huffington Post blog: "I had a hundred different ideas buzzing round in my head! I'm not gonna lie, this is my second album now and there is that age old stigma attached to the 'difficult' second album.

"There are gonna be a lot of eyeballs on me, and I would be lying if I didn't say I am feeling the pressure."

Alexandra filmed the video for the album's second single, Let It Go, last week and reportedly nearly got arrested while shooting scenes on the London Underground because she didn't get permission to film there.

The former X Factor winner revealed: "Let's just say that it was a bit hairy at times and there may have been a couple of occasions where we may not have had permission to film where we did... but at least you know when you watch the video that all that adrenalin you see is real!"
