Nicole Scherzinger is planning to move to the UK next year for a second series of The X Factor UK.

It was claimed earlier this week that Nicole was involved in a fight with bosses over pay after she revealed plans to quit!

Nicole said: “I’m really glad I did the show. I don’t know if I’ll come back next year. End on a high, right?”

Wanting to focus on her solo music career, the singer has already recorded a new single for release in the new year after putting her new album on hold for the show.

But Nicole did confess that the show had been a life changing experience, saying: “This year has changed my life. As an artist, it’s put into perspective what I want, how to go about it.

“People have made me so comfortable and I have to thank you.”

However insiders say X Factor boss Simon is keen to get Nicole back, and will offer her a “huge pay rise” to get her to commit.

An X Factor source told the Daily Mail: “Nicole has had a phenomenally successful year. She has established herself as part of the X Factor family.

“Simon is prepared to pull out all the stops to make sure she comes back, including offering her a huge pay rise. She has been a revelation, by far and away the most popular judge.”

But speaking to Now magazine, Nicole said she would definitely be back next year, pay rise or no pay rise.

In fact, she added: "I'm loving it so much, I'll move here next year."

A source claimed: "Nicole has fallen in love with London and wants a home there.

"And after being so well received on X Factor, she knows it will beneficial for her career to be based in the UK permanently."
