X Factor UK: Nicole Scherzinger gushes over 'Sir Gary Barlow'

The X Factor 2012 judges

Nicole Scherzinger has been gushing over the "brilliant" Sir Gary Barlow on The X Factor.

Speaking during filming for her judges' houses section in Dubai, Nicole described the Take That star as a "grade A human"

"Gary is brilliant. I didn’t really know him before. I think I really liked him the day I found out he won Celebrity Dad Of The Year," she said. “The pride he takes in his family and children — he’s a true gentleman. He’s a lovely, honest human. And he’s a great dad. All he does is talk about his family. I love that.”

Discussing Gary's charity work, which has included everything from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to organising charity concerts, Nicole continued: “He’s just a grade A human. It kind of sucks. He puts us all to shame.

“I thought I was something special until I came on the show. I thought the fans were waving at me but they just knocked me aside to take pictures of Gary. I was like, ‘Really? That’s what’s happening now? All right, I’ll take the picture of you with Gary’."

And Nicole claimed: "He’s going to be knighted. It just sounds right — Sir Gary Barlow.”

It's news to us, but we certainly wouldn't be surprised!
