New X Factor 2012 judge Nicole Scherzinger is going all out to be the show's sexiest panel member yet, it has been claimed!
The brunette beauty doesn't have to try too hard, but she's going up against FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World in the form of fellow X Factor judge Tulisa.
However Nicole's figure hugging, low cut dress as featured in the show's new promo seems to have given 'round one' to her.
“Nicole knows she will be coming in as the new girl and wants to make an impression," a supposed source told the Daily Star newspaper today. "So far it’s round one to Nic. We can’t wait for the live shows."
The insider added: "It’ll be designer handbags at dawn to see who can be the sexiest.”
