The 'Elephant' star shows off her figure in a new photoshoot for Look magazine. In an accompanying interview, Burke admitted that people think of her as being older than she really is.
"The first time I met Simon [Cowell] I was 16 and he asked to see my passport because he thought I was 25," she recalled. "I'm young and I want to show how much fun I can have."
Revealing her celebrity inspiration to start working out, the singer continued: "I started working out on 7 January. I saw pictures of Myleene Klass in Barbados over Christmas and I was like, 'Oh my God! How is she looking that good?' So I started doing loads of classes at the gym.
"I was a size 10, but now I'm an 8-10 and my arms, legs and bum have lifted. I genuinely feel great now."
"They can't give you a cuddle if you want one," she told the magazine. "I wouldn't rely on him for support when I've got my team here. If I need to have a cry, I know they're there for me."
The full interview appears in the new issue of Look magazine, out now.
