Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton Hugging

Lewis Hamilton must have been over the moon when he found out that his girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger was becoming a judge on the X Factor UK. No longer would he have to worry about Simon Cowell getting his hands or anything else near his precious girlfriend.

But it looks like even though the former Pussycat Doll will be based in the UK, their work schedules mean they wont be able to spend nearly as much time together as they would like to. Speaking to the Sun Nicole said

I’m actually going to spend less time with Lewis. I believe the X Factor shows are going to be running the same time as his races. But I’ll juggle things. I think everything will work out the way it’s supposed to. It’ll be OK

Yeah, that’s what Tulisa thought about her relationship with Jack O’Connell, but that certainly didn’t work out. Hamilton previously blamed Cowell for the couple’s split last year saying Nicole desperately trying to please Cowell put “immeasurable strain” on their relationship.

Oh dear. Well if they survived Cowell before they can certainly do it again.
