Nicole Scherzinger has apparently been asked to consider snubbing the X Factor by her boyfriend, Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton, because he's worried they'll be apart for a long time.
Lewis will be busy driving around the world while Nicole is sat on the X Factor judges' table all Autumn.
According to Mail Online, a source close to the couple told a newspaper: 'Lewis has said to Nicole this is going to be an awful situation and perhaps she shouldn't do it.
'If he thought she had her heart set on returning he wouldn't say this, but he knows she isn't desperate to go back and thinks she would be happier if they were together.'
There hasn't exactly been a shortage of X Factor rumours this year... big changes are on the way, says Sinitta, while Sharon Osbourne will apparently be back in Cowell's inner circle and Gary might be on the way out.
Who would your ideal judging panel be? Are you still watching or have you completely lost interest?
