It was only a phone call that offer Burke her dream role at the West End. Along with this, it also brought a lot of memories flooding back to X Factor. When she was asked to star in The Bodyguard, she was over the moon. However, it was only 2 years earlier that she called the police following a series of death threats. That time she hired her own bodyguard.
The twenty five year old recalled that they kept on saying that they would kill her. Knowing that, her dad really freaked out. After that Naomi Campbell introduced Burke to her bodyguard. Her dad made her employ him because he feared someone would throw acid in my face. Now Burke and Naomi share a bodyguard. His name is Peter and he is nice.
