XFactor 2013: Nicole Scherzinger can't wait to return!

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has confessed she can't wait to return to the show this year.

While nothing is confirmed about this year's judges, it's widely reported that Nicole will be back.

And she certainly doesn't seem to think she's going anywhere.

Speaking to Daybreak this week, the Pussycat Doll confessed she didn't get the best of receptions when she started on the series last summer.

She told the programme: "I'm not going to lie, I felt like coming to town and joining the show - I didn't get the warmest reception.

"So now to be embraced and to know that people get my sense of humour and get my quirkiness and see the passion that I put into the show, it feels really good and it does feel like I've bounced back like a boomerang."

She added: "My first week here I was depressed because of the weather. My second week here I was ready to move here. I loved it that much.

"I feel like I can be myself here, more myself, everybody gets my wit, my sense of humour. I'm kind of off the wall and so are they. I know it's crazy to say it but I feel like they embrace that here."

Nicole was promoting her new song Boomerang and did well to squeeze it more than a few times.

She continued: "I was shooting the video [for 'Boomerang'] and I was like getting frustrated and then I was like, 'No, I'm a boomerang, you can throw me out and the harder I'll come back around'. I can take a hit but you can't scratch my name. I'm a boomerang."

The X Factor airs on ITV.
