Nicole Scherzinger has dismissed reports of trouble in her relationship with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton and said being an X Factor judge will allow her to spend more time with her "lovely man".

Nicole, who recently denied kissing Chris Brown in a snap of the pair, appeared on ITV1's Lorraine with her three finalists on the show, James Arthur, Rylan Clark and Jahmene Douglas.

She said: "Me and my lovely man are lovely, that's what's going on... Yeah, we're great. I wish that I could be with him this week."

Nicole also added that after a race in Korea, Lewis "will come back and stay with me".

"So he's actually going to try and be with me as much as possible, so that will be lovely," she said.

On Daybreak, presenter and former singer Aled Jones also offered advice to Jahmene, telling him "to wiggle his toes in his shoes when he's singing because it takes your mind off being nervous."

Nicole joked that "everyone's going to be looking at his toes now".
