New X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger has denied that she was sacked from the US version of the show.
The ex-Pussycat Doll is quoted as saying: "I didn't get the boot, that's why Simon brought me here. He is very supportive and I love The X Factor."
She insists she was only ever going to do one season in America and says she and Simon Cowell, share a "great relationship".
Talking about her role on the UK version of the show, the ex-Pussycat Doll says: "Who knows? Maybe they'll kick me out. I'll be honest, speak from my heart and work really hard like I did last year.'
