Dating advice now from resident relationship expert and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger, who of course is dating Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton. Let's not talk about the Chris Brown thing. She does not want to talk about the Chris Brown thing.
In a cosy, quiet sit-down chat with The Sun, Nicole apparently 'supped' a 'pint of ale' and opened up about her long-term, long-distance romance with Hamilton. Imagine her saying these things in a rough Yorkshire accent and while patting a dog by a fire.
"Ee," said Nicole (she didn't say "ee"), "by 'eck." (She did not say that, either). "I wouldn't wish a long-term relationship on anyone." (She did say that).
But if you're just booting up Skype now so you can tell your LDR partner that they've been dumped By Order of Nicole Scherzinger, don't: the X Factor judge admitted that although maintaining a long-distance relationship could be a challenge, it's worth it if you're like, totally into each other and stuff.
Which is why she slammed The Chris Brown Thing we said we weren't going to talk about as being just complete nonsense, just nonsense.
Imagine Paula Abdul is Chris Brown and you sort of get the idea
"Chris Brown and I are definitely just mates," she said. "I have known him since he was younger than 16.
"You are always going to have people saying something or having a picture. But it is complete dross if you and your partner know what the truth is."
Relationship advice, in review: make it work if you think it's worth making work and don't get papped with your face within smooching distance of Chris Brown.
Will Nicole be the winning judge on this year's X Factor though? Hmm. Hmm. Why not have a think, then put a bet on the outcome of this year's show online. If you sign up to William Hill using the promo code F25, you'll get a free £25 bet.
