X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger helps Jahmene Douglas raise money for victims of domestic violence

Nicole Scherzinger has admitted that she would love Jahmene Douglas to find himself a nice girlfriend.

The X Factor judge has been working closely with the former shelf stacker on the ITV show and has guided him through a tough personal time, after details of his difficult and troubled upbringing were splashed all over the nation’s newspapers last week.

Despite his troubles, the inspiring hopeful has impressed the judges and viewers alike on each live show to date and Nicole has admitted that he moved her to tears with his performance of ‘Say A Little Prayer’ last weekend.

She said: ‘I couldn’t help but shed a few tears on Saturday. I have so much compassion for him. What a brave boy. He is somebody who turns all those negatives into positives.’

Jahmene has previously admitted that he has never had a girlfriend, never been kissed and has no one in the wings right now.

Nic hopes that can all change though and told Metro that she is hoping he will find someone deserving of him soon. She said:

‘It’s been lovely to see Jahmene grow in confidence each week. He deserves all the happiness in the world. After everything he’s been though, it would be wonderful to see him meet a nice girl.’

Meanwhile, Jahmene’s mum is trying to do something positive for other women who are in the position she was and who are victims of domestic abuse. She wrote on her fundraising page saying:

“Raising awareness on the fact that Womens aid needs funding. Refuges need funding. Children need help. Cut backs have caused an uneasy ripple of monotony of unnessesary heartaches. We can’t change the past but we can change the future. I have cried a river of tears ….but I refuse to drown. How many more lives will be lost before the right changes are made ? I would like to personally thank all the people on here for donating …together we can make a difference. I shall not rest until our voices are heard and the changes are made !!! Dedication to my son Daniel…..in our hearts always xxx”

Nicole Scherzinger shared a link to Jahmene’s mum’s fundraising page, tweeting:

“Help @JahmeneDouglas Mom raise money for her cause http://www.everyclick.com/mandy-thomas/info “You’re either part of the solution or you’re part of the problem””

Douglas himself wrote:

“Help raise awareness to fund the support for those suffering with domestic violence ♡ http://www.everyclick.com/mandy-thomas/info … ♡ #muchlove RT”
