XFactor 2013 judges: Nicole Scherzinger's not been asked back (yet!)

X Factor 2012 final Nicole Jahmene James

Nicole Scherzinger has revealed she's not (yet) been invited back to The X Factor UK in 2013.

The Pussycat Doll proved a hit on the show last year and was one of the few good things about it.

But producers have yet to make a decision over whether or not she'll return.

“I don’t know (if I’ll be back). We haven’t had the conversation yet – they’ve got to ask me," Nicole told Kiss FM this week. “I had the best time. It was one of the best years I’ve ever had.

“I didn’t know how much I’d fall in love with being here and the people – it’s awesome.”

It's been widely reported that both Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos could face the axe from the show, despite the pair joining Nicole at last night's National Television Awards, where the show lost out to Strictly Come Dancing.

Reports have claimed that X Factor boss Simon wants to refresh the panel, but he told us any changes definitely wouldn't see him back this year.

“It’s all to do with timing, it would be impossible to do the English show and American show together," he explained.

Speaking at the Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions this week, Simon added: “If the schedule was different then of course I would come back and do the English show, I miss it.”

Meanwhile, Nicole claimed she knew James Arthur would win the show last year.

She bragged: “I knew he was it. He’s not your cookie cutter talent – he’s more authentic, homegrown and raw.”
