X Factor star Alexandra Burke offered mum kidney
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke offered to give up one of her kidneys to her ill mother in a bid to save her life.
Melissa Bell, from Islington, north London, said she refused the offer because she did not want her daughter to sacrifice her chances of having a family — a possible side-effect of the operation.
She told the Evening Standard: “I need a new kidney. Alex offered me hers and was very serious about it, but if you take a kidney from a woman who hasn't had babies, you take away her chance of a family.
"That's more than robbery, it's downright wicked.”
