Judge Nicole goes hell for leather
Nicole Scherzinger went hell for leather at the X Factor auditions as she dazzled fans with her latest outfit.
The former Pussycat Dolls star attended the London stage of the contest wearing a zippy leather mini-dress and heels as she headed into the ExCeL centre to see the next batch of wannabes.
The US star was even greeted by a pearly king and queen as she and the other judges headed up the red carpet to put the hopefuls through their paces.
It is the latest stop on their tour around the UK to find the next bunch of singers who hope they can emulate James Arthur, the winner of last year's series of the ITV competition.
Fellow panellist Sharon Osbourne - who has rejoined the show after six years away - looked far more formal in a black trouser suit while Louis Walsh went for a dusky pink jacket and dark jeans.
Gary Barlow, back on the show for a third year, showed off his slimline look in a short-sleeved blue top.
