After her incredible duet with Beyoncé while she was a contestant on the show back in 2008, Alexandra confessed to the Metro she hasn't sung alongside another woman since - well, singing with Queen Bey definitely sets the bar quite high!

But now, after seeing Fleur strutting her stuff on this year's X Factor, the 26-year-old claimed she would love to join forces with the hopeful.

She said: "It's always been men [I've done a duet with]. It would be nice to have some girl power, plus she can dance! We could dance together and have a fierce performance."

Praised for her ability to be an all rounder, Fleur has been impressing the judges week in week out on The X Factor.

Throughout the competition not only has Fleur showcased her vocals, but the finalist has rapped and danced on stage too.

And, after her Big Band performance of Jessie J's 'Bang Bang' last Saturday, Simon - Fleur's mentor - told her he thinks she could go on to win this year's competition.

With comments like that it's no surprise, Fleur told fans she was "feeling good" earlier this week.

During rehearsals for next week's live show, Fleur tweeted: "Feeling so good this week!! Thank you my #fleurchampions xx."

The X Factor continues this Saturday (22 November) at 8pm on ITV.
