Nicole Scherzinger has officially left the X Factor, Simon Cowell has just confirmed.
After months of speculation that the former Pussycat Doll might be bowing out of her judging role on the hit ITV show, music mogul Simon has finally come out and confirmed the rumours.
Taking to Twitter to announce Nicole’s resignation, he wrote: ‘Nicole will always be a part of the X Factor family. Now signed to Sony as an artist. Thank you Nicole for everything.’
While we’re sad to see Scherzy and her sch-amazing Scherzisms go, we have to admit that we’re pretty excited to hear who will replace her.
Ever the tease, Cowell added afterwards: ‘And I hope to share some very very exciting news with you next week.’
Looks like we’ll have to wait and see…
