The 'Wet' singer is preparing to start her judging role on the ITV1 talent show.

Nicole Scherzinger arrived in London over the weekend ready to begin her role as the newest judge on The X Factor UK.

The 'Right There' singer tweeted after her arrival and was pictured at LAX airport in Los Angeles ahead of catching her flight to England.

"Just landed in Newcastle and the sun is shining :) So excited to start the UK X Factor tomm. Here we go…!" Nicole tweeted last night (17th June).

Nicole was announced as the permanent replacement for former judge Kelly Rowland last week, after the 'Down For Whatever' singer decided not to return for a second series on the show.

The 'Wet' singer said she was excited to "come full circle" by returning to the show's panel, alongside returning judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh.
