The 'Wet' singer has hinted that she may leave the show to focus on music in 2013.

Nicole Scherzinger has sparked speculation she may quit The X Factor UK after just one season as a panelist in order to focus on her music career.

The 'Try With Me' singer joined the show as a replacement for 2011 judge Kelly Rowland, and has two acts in this weekend's upcoming live final.

Nicole says she has really enjoyed joining Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the show's panel but is unsure of her future with the ITV1 series.

"I'm really glad I did the show," Nicole revealed to The Sun this week. "I don't know if I'll come back next year.

"End on a high right?" Nicole teased. "This year has changed my life.

"As an artist, it's put into perspective what I want, how to go about it."

Nicole added: "People have made me so comfortable and I have to thank you."
