Having faced heartbreak earlier this month when she called time on her relationship with Jermain Defoe, Alexandra Burke has been throwing herself into her work.
The former X Factor singer was spotted earlier today as she left the ITV studios in London but she didn't look like she was in the mood for a photo op.
Wearing an odd pair of ankle boots, Alexandra made her way to her waiting car in a haste failing to flashing a smile.
The 23-year-old looked like she was ready for summer in a pair of pink slim fitting and a printed top.

Showing off her unique sense of style, Alexandra finished off her look with a pair of black ankle boots which had wooden wedged heels.
Doing her rounds promoting her new album Heartbreak On Hold, the singer made an appearance on Lorraine Live where she performed her latest offering Let It Go.
Happy with how the show went, she tweeted, 'Had so much fun on Lorraine Kelly's show! Forgot my dancing shoes today lol! Thanks @randallwatson 4the loan! Lol love you! X'
However things in her personal life have hit a new low as it is being reported that her ex-lover Jermain Defoe is demanding that she returns all the gifts he showered her with during their relationship.
One present he especially wants back is a Bentley worth £175,000 which the Tottenham Hotspurs player claims he only lent to the Elephant singer.
Defoe has also asked Alexandra to hand over a watch and ring but the Bad Boys performer is apparently refusing because he has items from her wardrobe in his mansion.
A source close to the footballer told the Daily Star, 'It’s a sad state of affairs that it has become so acrimonious within a week of them agreeing it was worth trying to make their relationship work. Jermain wants his Bentley back along with other items he gave Alex.'
The source explained that the 29-year-old player had only showered Burke with gifts because she agreed to give him a second chance following news he had cheated on her with Geordie model Laura Brown.
'After the first cheating story, Jermain assured Alex he had learned his lesson and he tried to prove it with gifts, and she adored him so gave him another chance,' the source revealed to the paper.
'He didn’t cheat again on Alex after that, but another girl came forward claiming she had also slept with Jermain early on in his relationship with Alex. It seems that although Jermain hadn’t strayed again, Alex couldn’t take hearing about another girl and finished it.'
A spokesperson for the soccer ace declined to offer a comment to MailOnline.
Currently trying out a new blonde hairstyle whilst he trains for the England's Euro 2012 in Cannes, Jermain has actively been tweeting about how much he's enjoying his time in the French Riviera.
On Saturday he tweeted, 'Having a wicked time in Cannes, fitness training is made so much easier when it's in such a beautiful place like this'.
And following a day spent on a yacht with some friends, yesterday he uploaded another post which read, 'Great day on the yacht with my team @croberts22 @Reubes @Rem1Nelson been eating and training well too feeling sharp'.
