Nicole Scherzinger has compared the relationship between the ‘The X Factor’ judges as like that of a dysfunctional family.

The Pussycat Dolls star is pleased with the response she has had from fans of the ITV1 show and how well she has meshed with fellow judges Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh, despite their on-screen clashes.

Speaking at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards this week, Nicole said: “We’re one big happy dysfunctional family.

“I don’t know if I’m all that jazz, but [the response is] nice.

“I didn’t know how people were going to take me coming here. I just said to myself, I’ve got a lot of ammunition in my back pocket because I’ve worked really hard in the industry for a very long time.

“I’m here to be true to myself, I’m going to be honest I’m going to be the best mentor ever that I can possibly be and try and have some fun with it, bring some energy that’s all I’m trying to do, I never know what’s going to happen.”

The 34-year-old singer also weighed in on the recent bust-up between Gary and Tulisa - when he accused the N-Dubz star of having “fag ash breath” - and admitted she would have had a great response for Gary, but usually has no idea what comebacks are going to come out of her mouth.

Nicole said: “I would have said, ‘Don’t you miss it, darling!’ [mimes smoking] I’ve never smoked a cigarette though.

“I didn’t even know what they were talking about. We don’t have that slang in America.”
