If you missed it last night X Factor beauty and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger appeared on hit Channel 4 talk show ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’.

Nicole, now a judge on the X Factor for her second year is the mentor for the girls and tonight we turn to the live shows where all acts will perform a hit from the 80’s which for some will be a huge step because of what they’ve already performed.

Chatting with Alan Carr last night the beauty spoke about various things including how “rejects” (such a harsh word) are given the support to deal with the news that they won’t make it through.

You don’t have to be an expert to see how much these people want to be part of the music industry and hearing “no” could potentially be devastating for them:

“When the ­contestants don’t get picked, they fly home that afternoon. They do get counselling when they come home as a lot of them are so young.”

Nicole also spoke about how some contestants flirt in an attempt to win her over and how awkward that can be:

“It’s a totally awkward situation. The auditionees start to move forward and I’m like, ‘Please don’t make eye contact’. I start to look at the audience and pray they don’t come up to me. They come up and start grinding. Their breath is foul.”

Earlier in the week away from Alan Carr: Chatty Man the star admitted that she wasn’t a fan of the new bootcamp rule which features six chairs for the six finalists in each category.

She said: “Oh my gosh, it was wretched. It was so hardcore. It was brutal. It made for great telly [though], I’m not going to lie. We were there and I was sweating. This was like the lion’s den, we were throwing them out there to the wolves.”

The X Factor kicks off tonight, 8pm and we have revealed the full list of songs and performance choices for each of this year’s finalists here.
