“Anybody who is successful in what they do is making sacrifices. It's juggling and finding the balance,” she said.

“I've absolutely missed out on things in life. It is hard, I'm not going to lie.”

Nicole went on to reveal how her relationships have suffered as a result of her hectic career.

“It can be lonely. I'm always on the road, I'm always by myself. I think anybody in this industry feels lonely.”

The singer, who is currently dating 26-year-old tennis star, Grigor Dimitrov, said “timing is everything” when it comes to getting the balance just right.

“I would say it generally gets harder to find the balance the older you get.”

“When things are aligned then it will be easier. There's always a sacrifice to be made but it's either worth it or not,” the 39-year-old added.

Meanwhile it's rumoured that Nicole has not signed up to appear on next year's X Factor judging panel, amid reports that Cheryl could potentially return to fill the role.
