Alexandra Burke wows crowds at Bents Park gig

Singer Alexandra Burke took to the stage to perform a repertoire of hits infront of a packed audience at Bents Park.

Thousands of people turned up to the first summer concert at the seafront venue to see the X-Factor winner in action.

The star, who has had a number of hits since winning the show in 2008, turned her talents to the theatre appearing in musical The Bodyguard.

Later this year, Burke will play Deloris Van Cartier in the theatre show Sister Act.

But for now, she returned to the stage to perform for the huge crowd that had gathered in the park.
