Alexandra’s pet dog Bella later got in on the act, with the singer – who owns four dogs in total – sharing a selfie with the pooch. 

The posts come shortly after the star recalled the moment her beloved mother, former Soul II Soul singer Melissa Bell, ‘died in her arms’.

Alexandra lost her mother aged 53 in 2017, when she was touring around the country with the stage show Sister Act.

Featuring in Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcast, Alexandra revealed her biggest regret was not quitting the tour when her mother suffered a stroke eight months prior to her death.

She recalled: ‘When my mum fell sick it all happened so suddenly, she just spiralled.

‘I had eight months left and I sat her down in hospital and said: “Mum I’m going to quit the tour”, and do you know what she said? “First of all I didn’t raise a quitter and she said you get your black a***e on stage. People have paid to watch you perform.’

Alexandra said she decided to follow her mother’s wishes but would have her phone by the stage providing updates on her condition.

She continued: ‘If something had happened to her I would leave the show and then I would drive wherever I was Manchester, Sheffield, I would sleep on the hospital floor, then drive back to London.

‘I would see to family, stay the night and go back and do the show.’

Praising the health care workers who treated her mother, she added: ‘I can’t tell you how amazing the NHS doctors and nurses when they sat her down and told her “you have 72 hours to live”, she gave us another eight months.

‘She gave us another Christmas, a birthday each, a mother’s day. Then the last day of my show, I finished in Blackpool, I was driving back to London and I got a call saying “you need to come to hospital now” so I drove to hospital and within 10 minutes she died in my arms.’

‘So I lost those nine months, I regret going on tour. I regret it so deeply, I had so much time on the road than with my mum. I should have just told my mum “look you’re my priority, I want to quit the tour and be with you”.

‘My mum wouldn’t have want it any other way but putting work first that is something now I won’t do at times.

‘I was 29 when my mum passed away and I was so lucky to have my mummy for 29 years. What we shared, our memories we created together, money can’t buy that.’
