Nicole Scherzinger is said to be devastated following the death of her beloved grandmother.

The X Factor judge found out her nan had died shortly before Saturday night's show, but stayed to support her acts Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur and Rylan Clark, according to reports.

Nicole - who appeared tearful on the talent show, particularly after District 3's rendition of Tears In Heaven - has now flown home to the US for the funeral along with her racing driver boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.

A spokesman for the former Pussycat Doll told MailOnline: "Nicole had to return to the US to attend her grandmother's funeral. Sadly, she passed away on Saturday morning.

"She did mention on the show that a couple of the songs were particularly poignant for her."

A source told The Sun the 34-year-old was "devastated when she found out her gran had died".

"Her first instinct was to rush home. However, she's made a commitment to those boys and her family assured her she could fly out on Monday."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
