Nicole Scherzinger has become the fourth X Factor judge, the former Pussycat Doll has reportedly landed herself a £750,000 deal to appear on the show.

The Poison singer must be thrilled after receiving the boot from the American version of the show in favour of Demi Lovato and Britney Spears.

Nicole says: “I’m so excited to join the UK X Factor family. It's where I got my start, so it feels great to come full circle.

"I can’t wait to see what talent the UK has to offer and to help inspire and bring out the best in these artists.”

She replaced Cheryl Cole after she left the American show last year.

Nicole is expected to be announced before the auditions in Newcastle on 18th June.
