Former The X Factor USA judge Nicole will join the UK show's panel this week as a guest judge.

Nicole Scherzinger is set to guest judge at The X Factor auditions this Wednesday (30th May).

The ITV1 show confirmed the news via their official Twitter feed earlier today (29th May), after 'R.I.P.' singer Rita Ora served as guest judge in London yesterday (28th May).

"NEWS: The gorgeous @NicoleScherzy will be Guest Judge at tomorrow's auditions. (which start at 11am, punctuality fans)," they tweeted this morning.

Nicole served as a regular judge on The X Factor USA for the 2011 series of the show, before leaving this year to continue her solo music career, as well as appearing as a guest judge previously in 2010 on The X Factor in the uK.

Over the weekend the 'Try With Me' singer was pictured supporting boyfriend Lewis Hamilton at the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.

Today's London auditions for The X Factor will see Rita Ora remaining in the vacant judging seat this morning before 'Bleeding Love' singer Leona Lewis takes over this afternoon.

The X Factor has yet to announced who will replace former judge Kelly Rowland on the show to sit permanently alongside returning judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh.
