X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger proves more popular than Cheryl Cole!

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger has come out on top in our battle of The X Factor beauties.

The former Pussycat Doll replaced Cheryl Cole on the US version before joining the UK series this year, and it seems that viewers are loving the 'Right There' singer.

More than 60% of those who answered our poll said they preferred Nicole over Cheryl, who quit the show in 2010.

It's certainly fair to say that Nicole has been a bit of a revelation on the show this year, having originally been the butt of jokes when she was announced as joining the panel.

But her bizarre comments, which have included comparing acts to apple pie and ice cream and cheese toasties, have won over viewers.

And with all three of her acts still left the competition, Nicole's also on course to prove a successful mentor.
