In the words of Chandler Bing: It's awkward, oh it's awkward.

If you're the type of person who would rather chew their own arm off than watch anything even remotely awkward unfold, then you may want to sit this one out.

But for the rest of you who like watching celebrities in tricky positions, you may want to feast your eyes on the moment Nicole Scherzinger decided to completely blank a question referring to fellow X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Not once, but twice.

While being interviewed at the X Factor launch yesterday, Nicole made it pretty clear  – without saying a word – that she wasn't here to talk about the Geordie gal.

And even after helpfully rattling off Cheryl's full name, the reporter was left with a former popstar who looked like she'd rather be anywhere else at that moment.

Watch through your fingers if you must, ladies.




After months of speculation the judges for this year's X Factor have finally been announced and it seems there'll be a few familiar faces returning to the show.

Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh – who have all mentored winners in the past – are set to join Simon Cowell on his hunt for the next big name in music.

The new (or is it old?) judges will replace Cheryl, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw who all chose not to return to the judging panel this year.

Speaking of her return, Nicole, who controversially turned down a role in a Broadway production of Cats to be part of this year's X Factor, said: “I can’t wait to be back in the UK and on the show with the best judges sitting alongside me on the panel.  I'm excited about discovering, mentoring and winning with an exciting new act this year."

Mayo man Louis Walsh said he's excited to return to the show and, most importantly, is looking forward to this year's Dublin auditions.

Meanwhile Sharon, who recently decided to divorce husband Ozzy, has decided to focus on the real benefits of returning to the show – meeting Simon’s baby!

She said: “I’m overjoyed about going back to the X Factor, sitting with Lou, Lou, gorgeous Nicole and naughty Simon. But most of all, I can’t wait to meet baby Eric.”

Dermot O’Leary is going to reprise his role as host after a series-long break which saw Caroline Flack and Olly Murs take his place.

And as one final blast from the past, the infamous room auditions will be part of this year’s show.

The first auditions will take place in Leicester on June 10.
