Talent show judge Nicole Scherzinger has described rumoured flame Thom Evans as “lovely”.
Suggesting she doesn’t have much time for dating, the X Factor: Celebrity personality explained she is ‘focusing on herself’ following the announcement the Pussycat Dolls will reunite next year.
“Thom is lovely but what’s going on is that I am very busy,” Nicole is reported to have said on the Dan Wootton podcast.
“It’s been a very transitional transformation year for me and I am really focusing on distracting myself with my destiny.”
The 41-year-old went on to suggest organising the upcoming tour has been her biggest priority recently.
“Truth be told, I really willed and prayed for this [reunion]. It took a lot of work,” she added.
Thom is lovely.
“The timing was right. It took a lot of focus.”
Last weekend Nicole voted for Thom’s group Try Star – which also included fellow egg chasers Levi Davis and Ben Foden – to leave X Factor: Celebrity.
A tabloid claimed she picked his act to go in order to ‘save their romance’ – which Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh seemed to tease her about on air.
An unnamed show insider was reported to have told the newspaper’s website: “Nicole is really into Thom and she didn’t want jokes being made about them.
“She chose to get rid of his group Try Star because it would stop people scrutinising what she has with Tom.
“And she knew they were the weaker act.”
ED has approached a representative for Nicole for comment.
– X Factor: Celebrity concludes next Saturday on ITV at 7.10pm
