Nicole Scherzinger urged to snub X Factor
Nicole Scherzinger is being offered the chance to sing on both 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'The X Factor' later this year and has been urged to snub her former show
Nicole Scherzinger is being lured to perform on both 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'The X Factor'.
The 'Your Love' singer, 36, is at the centre of a tug of war between the BBC and ITV, with the former keen to see Nicole snub the chance to appear on her old show when she promotes her new album later this year.
An insider told the Daily Star: "Nicole is one of the sexiest pop babes around.
"When she releases her album everyone will want her on their show. 'Strictly' want to get the upper hand and feel having a former 'X Factor' judge on their show will do just that.
"If Nicole goes on 'The X Factor' then she will have to perform in front of Cheryl. The media furore it will create will be intense, everyone will be looking for some sort of clash between them."
The former Pussycat Dolls singer is due to release her new solo album at the same time 'Strictly' and 'The X Factor' return to screens, leaving Nicole with a big decision to make in terms of which show she appears on.
BBC bosses are keen for Nicole to perform one of her new tracks on their results shows, knowing it is likely to boost audience figures.
The American star quit the 'X Factor' judging panel earlier this year after two series on the ITV singing competition.
