Her romance with Darren began after Alexandra split from footballer Angus MacDonald in October 2020, after 15-months of dating.
An insider confirmed to MailOnline at the time that Alexandra and Angus had ‘amicably split’ and ‘remain good friends’ despite having gone their separate ways.
The X Factor winner began dating the sportsman following the breakdown of her engagement to Josh Ginnelly, who she split from just weeks earlier.
Alexandra was previously in a relationship with ex-fiancé Josh for three years before they split in June 2019.
The former Strictly star confirmed she and Josh were engaged in 2018 when she shared a photo of her diamond ring to Instagram alongside the words: ‘I said yes!’
Darren previously dated The Saturdays star Rochelle Humes before she married singer Marvin Humes in 2012.

The source continued: ‘Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming.’
‘Things are going really well. They’re super-happy seeing each other when they can, and she’s now helping him redecorate his mansion.’
