Nicole Scherzinger And Steve Jones' X Factor Flirting

Word on the US X Factor set is that Steve has his eye on Nicole.

Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones were set to co-present the show together before Nicole got promoted to a judge's spot when Cheryl Cole got the boot.

But since then the pair have become close friends, with Steve even spilling the beans on a recent Karaoke night together where he serenaded Nic with Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

"Me and Scherzinger have hit it off big time (and) became very close very quickly," the presenter said.

Now sources on The X Factor set in the US say Steve has developed a real soft spot for Nicole.

"There is some unmistakable on-screen chemistry there," a source told the Daily Mirror.

"He flirts with her whenever he can, and she just laughs it off...

"Steve has plenty of eye-candy on set but Nicole is definitely the object of some of his finest lines."

Unfortunately for Steve, Nicole is settled with boyfriend Lewis Hamilton and there are rumours of an imminent proposal in the pipeline.
