Scherzinger teased over singledom

Nicole Scherzinger was left unimpressed at The X Factor auditions when the warm-up act joked about her new single status.

Judge Nicole recently split from long-term partner Lewis Hamilton and found herself the butt of jokes at filming for the ITV singing contest, said The Sun.

During a break in filming, warm-up man Ian Royce told the audience, "Nicole's single", in front of the apparently unimpressed ex of F1 driver Lewis.

He went on: "I haven't got a race car but I'm single too."

Nicole, wearing a bright pink shirt and patterned skirt, and sitting alongside fellow judges Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, didn't seem to find the jokes funny.

An onlooker told The Sun: "Nicole didn't look happy. It seemed too soon for jokes."

The X Factor was holding London auditions at Wembley Arena and is due back on screens later this summer.
