X Factor 2012: Diva Nicole Scherzinger angry over economy plane ticket

Nicole Scherzinger

Diva X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly been left angered by show bosses after they booked her an economy seat to fly back to the States.

The X Factor team are in charge of booking all of the former Pussycat Doll singer's flights to and from the UK, and have been rather stingy with the budget!

According to The Sun, Nicole tried to use her celeb status to get a free upgrade but BA refused.

Instead, the 34-year-old was forced to pay £3,500 to upgrade the ticket to LA.

“Nicole was fuming," a source told the newspaper today. “She always flies first-class but she was amazed to find that she had been booked into economy.

“The X Factor books all of her flights — but she hadn’t expected this.

“Nicole spent 20 minutes trying to get BA to upgrade her but in the end she had to put her hand in her pocket."

The insider added to the tabloid: "There were a few mutterings about Simon Cowell being a tightwad."
