She continued: "I was 16 when I had my first relationship. It lasted about two years. Then I dated another guy for six months last year. But he was a bit of a nutcase. I let him go just before X Factor went live. He was very insecure and I have no time for that. There's been no one since."
In July she was rumoured to be dating American singer Cameron Quincy Jagher, but the 21-year-old Burke brushes all such gossip aside. She said: "We were just friends. We went out for dinner then his people placed a story about us. I am looking for a boyfriend, though. I have never been in love but I want to feel that. I'm ready for it."
Speaking about her dance with rapper Chipmunk at last week"s MOBOs she said: "Chipmunk is a bit young for me. But he's a very cute guy and we have loads of mutual friends. Aston is like my brother. We dance all the time together. Don't get me wrong, he is a great-looking dude. But nothing is going to happen."
Burke confesses that funnyman James Cordon from BBC comedy Gavin & Stacey is trying his charm on her. She added: "We've stayed in touch ever since and we even went to see Thriller Live together a couple of weeks ago. He's still trying it on. But, sorry James, it's never going to be more than friends."
