X Factor 2012: Jahmene Douglas says Nicole has given him confidence

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

X Factor finalist Jahmene Douglas has said that mentor Nicole has given him more confidence.

We've seen Asda worker Jahmene battle nerves in each round of the auditions so far, and as the live shows approach we expect that they're only going to be getting worse.

Nicole was seen putting Jahmene, James Arthur and Rylan Clark through to the X Factor 2012 live shows on Sunday night, and the move has inspired the shelve stacker.

He said this week: "I believe in myself a little more."

Jahmene has also revealed he's never had a girlfriend, saying: "I'm too young for that."

And while he doesn't have a crush on Nicole, Jahmene did say he found the former Pussycat Doll singer "classy".
