Nicole Scherzinger tipped to judge on The X Factor in the UK (AND in the US!)

Nicole Scherzinger

According to the Daily Mirror today, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is set to judge on both The X Factor in the UK and USA! The sexy singer has reported signed a deal, despite Simon Cowell earlier this week suggesting he'd be taking Cheryl Cole and Paula Abdul on for the US version of the show.

According to the newspaper, Nicole will be flown between the recordings across the Atlantic every week in a private jet thanks to retail mogul (and friend of Simon Cowell) Sir Philip Green.

A source told the tabloid: "Nicole is more than happy to make the extra effort to be there because she knows what an opportunity this could be for her solo career.”

ITV (apparently) said they were “completely comfortable" with the idea and setup.

The UK version of the show will air on the weekends as usual, however the US version will air during the week similar to American Idol and The Voice.

Nicole last year was a guest judge at the Manchester auditions of the show.
