Nicole Scherzinger has promised a lot of fun on The X Factor 2016 this summer.

The former judge was confirmed to be back on the panel this year at the start of the week and can't wait for filming to begin.

Nicole will return alongside Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, who all appeared together on the 2013 series, together with boss Simon Cowell.

Nicole said: “I can’t wait to be back in the UK and on the show with the best judges sitting alongside me on the panel.

"I'm excited about discovering, mentoring and winning with an exciting new act this year.

"And having had winning contestants in the past, Simon knows I will do it.”

Chatting on ITV's Daybreak today (Friday), Nicole said of her X Factor return: "I'm so excited, I miss England. It's my second home."

And she promised viewers: "I think we're just gonna have a lot of fun."

The new series of The X Factor starts filming with the latest judging line up next month.

This year there will be NO arena auditions as instead try outs return to the more intimate judges' rooms.

From there acts will head straight to bootcamp and then the six chair challenge, which will now be their first performance in front of an audience.

Dermot O'Leary is back to front the show, replacing Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.

The X Factor will start on TV in the autumn on ITV.
