Alexandra Burke met Manchester United stars

ALEXANDRA BURKE never struck me as a football fan, so it's impressive how excited she was when she went to see the Manchester United lads train yesterday.

The singer was up north for last night's gig in Blackpool and decided to drop in on the Red Devils.

Fan ... when Alex met Rio Ferdinand

She tweeted: "So, I'm up early and making the most of it!

"I'm going to watch the Man United players train! Biggest cheesy smile ever on my face!"

Alex posted snaps of herself with RYAN GIGGS and RIO FERDINAND.

She added: "I just met Mr Ryan Giggs. I can't even breathe right now!".
