Nicole Scherzinger has revealed her surprising relationship with Louis Walsh on The X Factor.
Even if she's a bit miffed at him claiming she's had a boob job.
Chatting backstage at The X Factor this weekend, Nicole admitted she and Louis were perhaps unexpectedly close behind the scenes.
“I get homesick. England keeps me busy and I love the amazing restaurants here but I really do miss the island," said Nicole, who was born in Hawaii.
She explained: “People don’t realise that a lot of the time when I’m in the back, Louis is really the one to lift me up. Some days he gives me a pep talk, and he really knows how to lift me.
"We’re real friends behind the scenes.”
However Nicole wasn't too impressed when Louis accused her of having had plastic surgery during a recent appearance on Celebrity Juice.
Nicole told the Daily Mirror: “I said to Louis I’m like a fine wine, I just get better with age. When the time comes, maybe I’ll experiment with Botox. I just want to look like JLo.
"I mean how old is Jennifer now? And she’s the best she’s ever looked.“Louis pushes his luck, but I can handle him. I’ve known all of them for a long time, so you can be cheeky and occasionally push it but we never take it personally.”
Meanwhile, Nicole also spoke about the possibility of returning as a judge next year.
She said: “At the start of this year, I didn’t know what I’d be doing but you’ve got to be open in this business. Maybe I’d be open to coming back to X Factor.
“We’ll see how hard Simon tries to persuade me!”
The X Factor continues tonight at 8PM on ITV.
