XFactor 2014 judges: Nicole Scherzinger may quit to have babies (so those 'insiders' say)

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2013 judges)

Nicole Scherzinger could be set to snub a reported £3 million deal in order to have babies with Lewis Hamilton.

And what absolutely gorgeous little tots those babies will almost certainly be.

According to one X Factor 'insider', Nicole's could quit the show in order to become a mum because apparently being a talent show judge is something she can do anytime.

"At the end of the day somebody is going to have to make a sacrifice and they've agreed that for now it makes more sense if that's Nicole," says rather dubious insider.

They claimed to Reveal magazine this month: "Nicole has her whole life ahead to pursue her art and her career. For Lewis it's very much about the here and now. A racing driver's career is short and he can't afford to take his eye off the ball - it's a life or death thing, the margin for error is so small."

The news follows reports last week that Simon Cowell would be returning to the panel alongside Cheryl Cole and Rita Ora, with Louis Walsh remaining for an eleventh series.

“Simon has been annoyed about how the show has fallen off people’s radars and lagged behind Strictly in the ratings — now he wants to fix it,” a source told The Sun newspaper.

With the bookies and behind Simon, Cheryl and Louis, Nicole and Robbie Williams are both given odds of 2/1 of being announced as one of this year's X Factor judges while Rita is at 3/1 and former X Factor finalist Olly Murs is 4/1.

Former Spice Girl Mel B is at 8/1 and Katy Perry - who previous backed Cheryl to make a comeback to the series - is a 10/1 shot according to Ladbrokes.

The X Factor 2014 will air on ITV in the summer with auditions beginning this Spring.
