    Speaking to The Mirror, she said: ‘I was crying all the time. If I saw an advert for the Army, I had a panic attack. That side of it was really awful.’

    From there, the singer admitted she had been to therapy and hadn’t been sleeping.

    ‘I always thought there was somebody outside waiting to attack me. So I got a bit paranoid,’ she added.

    Despite the tough readjustment, The X Factor star – who lost her mum, Soul II Soul singer Melissa Bell, in 2017 – was proud to be the only woman to reach the final of the exhausting series. 

    ‘All I could do was think of my mum because I was just like: “She’d be so immensely proud of me. She’d be so proud,”‘ Alexandra recalled. 

    And she remains optimistic, something evidenced during her appearance on Lorraine last week. 

    The Bad Boys songstress revealed how partaking in the show has ‘changed her forever.’ 

    ‘I have struggled with self-belief for a long time. I may ooze confidence when I’m perform, but that’s not me from day to day,’ she admitted to the Scottish presenter.

    ‘‘This show [SAS] has completely introduced me to my self-worth, it’s changed me forever. It’s given me a whole new lease of life.’
