Alexandra Burke celebrated her 23rd birthday in style at the Gilgamesh restaurant in Camden on Thursday night with her close family and friends. The All Night Long singer was all smiles as she celebrated with the likes of Dionne Bromfield, One Direction and presenter Denise Van Outen. Rapper Example’s party invite must of got lost in the post…

Also on the guest list was 20-year-old rapper, Chipmunk and The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Pope. In the past, Chipmunk tweeted his thoughts on the former page 3 model and DJ, describing her as ‘fit’…how original.

Insiders at the bash told The Daily mail reporters that the two looked more interested in each other than the birthday girl, and after a lot of obvious flirting they eventually exchanged numbers. A party goer said

Chipmunk seemed very keen on Lauren. Obviously now she’s single she’s been getting lots of attention…I saw him take her phone and put his number into it. Although Lauren didn’t seem as keen as he was.

Lauren Pope and Chipmunk

Do you think Chipmunk got a little bit over excited by Miss Pope? Or could we be seeing a new celebrity romance?  ‘Popemunk’ has a ring to it don’t you think?
