Alexandra was in a jovial mood as she posed for a slew of snaps from the pool.

She captioned the post: ‘Apparently it’s the last day of summer… so of course I had to go too the worlds 1st floating pool – just lush!  @embassygardens #TheSkyPool’

The 25-metre-long floating pool stretches between the rooftops of the Legacy Buildings at Embassy Gardens. 

Only residents and their guests have access to the world-famous swimming pool. 

Alexandra’s relaxing day comes after the star recently slammed claims she received special treatment from Chief Instructor Ant Middleton on Celeb SAS: Who Dares Wins. 

Viewers watched on Sunday night Ant, 40, and his team rank the singer the strongest out of all the recruits. 

Appearing on The One Show on Tuesday, Alexandra shut down speculation she was the favourite and joked she wish she had received special treatment after breaking her ribs- in scenes yet to be aired on the series.

Alexandra said: ‘I can absolutely just reassure people that there is no favouritism on this show at all, whatsoever.

‘I wish I had some favouritism because I broke my ribs for crying out loud. You have your microphones on at every single given moment.

‘They hear everything you’re doing, seeing everything you’re doing and there is no favouritism so I just want to put that to bed and just say that, that did not happen at all.’

Alexandra added: ‘I was not trained for it, I wasn’t ready for it.’ 

Of her experience the X Factor winner said: ‘It was amazing – even talking about it and watching it, I get sweaty palms I won’t lie.

‘Reliving all those moments again, it doesn’t bring back the most tremendous memories, it does make me really nervous talking about it.’ 

Earlier this week, it was reported the West End star found herself in the midst of a complaints storm from her co-stars who felt she was being treated ‘differently’ by the show’s chief instructor.

A source said to The Sun on Sunday: ‘Ant appeared to take a shine to Alexandra on SAS and it didn’t go unnoticed by the show’s stars and the crew. 

‘From the word go the others thought he treated Alexandra differently.’  

‘During filming he would be seen taking her to one side for a chat and, at points, they’d even take their microphones off so no one could hear what they were saying.’

According to the insider, Alexandra was ‘oblivious’ to the extra attention, but it became ‘annoying’ to others who decided to complain about her ‘special treatment’.

Ant was fired from Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins earlier in 2021 after filming concluded.

He was dropped due to his alleged ‘personal conduct,’ with the presenter fiercely denying claims that he was axed for making ‘inappropriate’ or ‘lewd comments’ to female staff on set.

Speaking on a recent podcast, he hit out at ‘victim mentality’ and said he’s ‘too far gone now to be completely cancelled’.

He said: ‘I can get as drunk as a skunk and that’s not in my nature, that’s not who I am. 

‘My family knows that and my wife knows that. I’m more of a boys’ boy – let’s f**k off the chicks and go and have a drink with the lads. It makes me realise how this victim mentality is really taking over.

‘My career could be cancelled if I wasn’t who I am. I’m too far gone and too long in the tooth now to be completely cancelled.’

Dropped: Earlier this year Ant was dropped by Channel 4 due to his alleged 'personal conduct,' with the presenter denying claims that he was axed for making 'inappropriate' comments
