WEEKENDER

Alexandra Burke stars in the all-new production of the hit musical comedy, Sister Act, which hits the Sunderland Empire stage from September 5-10

Friday night gladrags or a night on the sofa?
Definitely a night in on the sofa! I’m on the road six nights a week with the show, so I like to spend my one night off at home with my boyfriend, family, friends and dogs!

A super Saturday?
A lie-in, followed by a gym session and some sort of adventure – a bike ride, horse riding or something fun! I’d finish with a lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants, or a takeaway and a movie at home.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
Somewhere where the sun shines! Either Jamaica or Dubai.

Memorable mini-break?
Paris with my boyfriend. I loved it and will definitely be going back.

Sunday best?
A movie marathon followed by a Sunday roast at my house!
