Broody Nicole Scherzinger's maternal 'X Factor' role

Thursday September 23, 2010

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has said she's ready to marry and start a family with boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.

"I'm really traditional - I'd want to be married before we have kids and that's something we'll hopefully be doing soon," she said in a magazine interview.

"I love kids and I'm feeling broody." 

Viewers will soon have a chance to see the Pussycat Doll's maternal side on display when 16-year-old Cher Lloyd shows off her vocal skills for the judges.

The teenager (pictured) is a ringer for Cheryl Cole, who had championed her before malaria ruled her out of a number of shows.

In episodes to be shown this weekend, Cher takes to the stage rather nervously.

She is desperately hoping that the Geordie lass' absence doesn't affect her chances of getting through the crucial boot camp stage.

And that Nicole - covering Cheryl's sick leave - votes in her favour.
