Nicole Scherzinger was 'booted' off the panel of X Factor USA after just one season along with fellow judge Paula Abdul, but now the singer has joked about getting fired from the UK's X Factor!
It's no exaggeration to say that Nicole is way more popular in the UK with music than the US, so it's no real surprise that she's here to join Louis Walsh and Tulisa on the panel but believe it or not, Nicole reckons that her new job will mean that she'll see less of her beau Lewis Hamilton.
Talking to The Sun, the former Pussycat Dolls star has revealed that the filming dates for X Factor clash with Lewis's formula one races.
''I'm actually going to spend less time with Lewis. I believe the X Factor shows are going to be running the same time as his races.
''But I'll juggle things. I think everything will work out the way it's supposed to. It'll be OK.''
Nicole, 33, who was at the auditions in Newcastle upon Tyne yesterday, said that Lewis hasn't been the most helpful when it comes to her relocation to the UK.
She joked: ''I think I'm still giving Lewis tips on surviving the Brits!''
Even though Nicole wasn't offered an extension on her US contract, the singer reveals that she still gets on with Simon Cowell.
"Simon and I have a great relationship. He didn't axe me. I was only meant to do the one season - and now the UK has me,” she said.
''It's perfect. Now the UK will get all of me - that's why Simon brought me here. I've signed up for one series but, who knows, maybe they will kick me out.''
