ALEXANDRA Burke has vowed to be by boyfriend Angus MacDonald’s side as he battles with bowel cancer.
The 31-year-old singer has insisted she will “always” be there to support the 26-year-old footballer, after he admitted he has been diagnosed with the condition.
The X Factor 2008 winner shared a sweet photograph of her and her new flame cuddling one another on holiday in Dubai.
She captioned the Instagram post: “Always by his side. Forever.”
Angus took to the online platform to share with his fans details of his illness.
The Hull city defender shared a picture of him in his orange and black kit, which read: “This is not an easy post to write but life isn’t always an easy road to navigate. The news broke today from my club that I have been diagnosed with Bowel Cancer.
“After a year on the sidelines and recently getting back into full training, returning to the pitch felt closer than ever, so this news has come as a complete shock and is hard to take and fully process.
“However, I’m blessed to have fantastic family and friends and some very good people around me to help me get through this, as well as amazing team mates and staff at the club who have been with me all the way through the past year.
“I’m getting my head around this new challenge that lies ahead.
“I will be ready to fight this head on, and I’m going to do whatever I can to get back to full health and back on that pitch.”
The sporting ace has admitted he is taking some time away from social media to enjoy quality time with Alexandra.
He concluded: “I’m going to take a few days away from social media, and get some alone time with my nearest and dearest.”
The news comes just months after Angus was diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg in September 2018, which saw him pull out of playing football for nine months.
Back when Angus was 15 years old he found a blood clot in his lung, but made a swift recovery from.
Alexandra and Angus confirmed they were dating when they were spotted out at Wimbledon together in July this year.
The outing came just weeks after she split from ex-fiancé Josh Ginnelly.
