X Factor 2012: Caroline Flack loves "shamazing" Nicole Scherzinger

Caroline Flack

Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack has a new favourite judge, Nicole Scherzinger!

The telly host reckons Nicole has been a breath of fresh air on the show this year thanks to her made up words and risque double entendres.

"All the judges are great this year, but I'm genuinely surprised at how good Nicole is," Caroline confessed this week. "She doesn't mind being asked controversial questions, and she's really up for a laugh.

"She's so passionate about her contestants, too - emotions were running really high when she dropped the effing bomb after James was in the bottom two with Ella."

Caroline admitted that she had some time getting to know and understand the US signer, but now they're best pals.

She revealed: "Nothing about her fazes me anymore, it's just like, 'Oh, it's Nicole.'

"Despite inciting babies to vote, getting political with ed balls, and exploring vajazzles, Nicole's finest moment is giving birth to shamazming.

"I'll be gutted if it doesn't make it into the dictionary next year."

The X Factor 2012 continues next weekend with the live final in Manchester.

Chris Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur will be battling it out to be crowned winner, while there will be performances from One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Rhianna and Emeli Sande.
