Nicole Scherzinger To Judge On 'X Factor' Again - The U.K. Version

June 12th, 2012 10:39pm EDT

Nicole Scherzinger Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger has accepted a judging panel role on the British version of TV talent show THE X FACTOR.

Scherzinger, who has been replaced by Britney Spears on the U.S. spin-off, will take over from former Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland on the upcoming season of the British singing competition.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "She's accepted the offer and she's going to be in the U.K. for about four months."

The 33 year old has personal ties to the U.K. - her boyfriend is native racing driver Lewis Hamilton.

Reports suggest show producers were keen to sign Scherzinger for the program after she wowed them with her guest-judging stint during auditions in London at the end of last month.

Scherzinger was initially signed to co-host America's The X Factor with TV presenter Steve Jones last year, but she was promoted to judge after British singer Cheryl Cole was axed from the show.
