Understandably Gary Barlow has other things on his mind at the moment, grieving after his daughter Poppy was stillborn, but before tragedy hit his family the 'Rule The World' singer raved about new X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger.

According to The Metro, Barlow gushed: "We’re really pleased to have Nicole on the panel with us. She’s amazing. She really feels like a Hollywood star."

He clearly has a thing for the former Pussycat Doll as a judge on the ITV1 show, as he carried on to praise not just Nic's status withingthe music industry but her working relationship with her fellow judges, saying: "She got the job because she clicked. She fitted in. With all her experience in the industry and as a judge on the US X Factor, she has definitely earned her place on this."

Barlow also praised Scherzinger's attitude to X Factor hopefuls, adding: "I think she’ll be quite good with the contestants. She’s quite emotional, maternal almost."

Despite the praise from Gary, Nicole still felt the need to ingratiate herself with another of her judging comrades, singing the praises of Tulisa.

Nic said: "Tulisa is always the first to speak on the panel and I admire that. She talks sense, too. She doesn’t say half the cheesy stupid stuff I say."

Sounds like the judges are more interested in having a love in than judging a music competition!
