It’s the least surprising news of the week… Nicole Scherzinger has reportedly signed a deal worth £750,000 to become The X Factor’s fourth judge.
There’s been speculation for some time that the job would go to the former Pussycat Doll after stints as a guest judge, and now it’s thought she’s negotiated a deal with X Factor bosses. The singer, 33, asked for more than the initial offer of £500,000 as she knew Dannii Minogue had been offered £1million to come back to the show.
“Nicole’s management have negotiated a good deal,” and insider tells The Mirror. “It’s a great salary considering most of the auditions have already been done by special guests.”
Simon Cowell sacked Nicole from the US version of the show, is she the girl for the job over here?
