Pussycat Dolls 'to perform on Celebrity X Factor live shows'

X Factor 2017: Nicole Scherzinger.

The Pussycat Dolls will reportedly reunite on The X Factor: Celebrity live shows.

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger is set to join her former bandmates for their first gig together in 10 years.

It comes amid rumours the group - Nicole, Melody Thornton, Kimberley Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta - will head out on a new tour to celebrate 20th anniversary.

According to The Sun newspaper, the band are planning to go "all out" with their performance.

"The X Factor ­producers approached Nicole about the idea of performing with the girls and she jumped at the chance," a source shared. “It’s going to be their first big ­performance of the reunion and will be extra special for Nicole because of her role in the show.

“Having the Pussycat Dolls perform is a real coup for Simon Cowell and he has told Nicole to pull out all the stops to make sure their routine gets people talking."

Exact details of the planned performance have yet to be confirmed with Celebrity X Factor's live shows continuing Saturday nights on ITV.

Last week's episode saw a performance from James Arthur as another two contestants were eliminated.

Actress Victoria Ekanoye and actor Jonny Labey were given the boot in the second elimination of the series.

Now nine acts are left in the running to be crowned the winner of The X Factor: Celebrity and winning a record deal.

Those left in the competition are Glee star Kevin McHale, and reality TV personality Megan McKenna, TV newsreader and journalist Martin Bashir, footballer turned actor Vinnie Jones, The Chase's Jenny Ryan, rugby trio Try Star, Love Island supergroup No Love Lost, social media influencers V5 and duo Max & Harvey.

The X Factor: Celebrity series continues on November 9 at 8:10PM.

You can watch the show online as episodes air or catch up later via the ITV Hub.
