X Factor viewers have called Nicole Scherzinger “disrespectful” after she appeared on the show without a poppy.

The former Pussycat Doll wore a cream-coloured lace dress for Sunday night’s instalment of the ITV programme, and eagle-eyed fans spotted that it was not adorned with a Remembrance Day poppy.

Scherzinger’s fellow judges, Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, all sported the red flower, as did host Dermot O’Leary and the contestants.

Viewers expressed their displeasure on Twitter, with many posting messages asking: “Where’s Nicole’s poppy?”

“#XFactor why isn’t Nicole wearing a poppy???? I know she’s not British but come on ya on a British show very disrespectful I must say,” wrote one person.

“Such shame Nicole Sherzinger isnt wearing a poppy on the #XFactor – it’s not like her dress doesn’t have enough holes 2put it in,” pointed out another.

“Unsure as to why @NicoleScherzy can’t wear a Poppy? @TheXFactor certainly hope it’s not so she doesn’t ruin her dress…” said another.

“Where is Nicoles poppy? The disrespect,” said another upset viewer.

Sunday night’s show saw the girls and the overs categories perform their songs for Latin Week.
