X Factor 2012 judges: Nicole says Gary Barlow "doesn't get it"

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Nicole Scherzinger has claimed that Gary Barlow "doesn't get it".

The former Pussycat Doll claimed in an interview with the Daily Mirror today that the Take That star needed to stop being so boring!

"Gary and I talk music. I respect him but we don't hang out because he's spending all his spare time with his family," Nicole told the newspaper this morning. "But I was glad Robbie came on and socked it to him with Rylan. I mean, Robbie is on it but Gary just doesn't get it, but maybe that's why they call him Gary "Borelow"."

On Tulisa, Nicole continued: "Tulisa is great, she's my friend. She's the one who I can kick back and have a glass of wine with. I've got her back. When Gary called her "fag breath", I was the one who dragged him over [off air] and told him to sort it out. He did, he went and apologised.

"I was also confused because fag means a whole bunch of other stuff where I come from."

And Nicole revealed she had become close pals with Louis Walsh, with the duo sharing gossip over dinner!

She added: "Louis gave me the confidence to think I could do this show. We go out for dinner, we gossip, we talk serious stuff. He's remarkable."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
