Scherzinger: Cowell pinches my best bits
SIMON COWELL has been accused by Nicole Scherzinger of ripping off her best lines when they’re filming The X Factor.
Just as a new series looms, the former Pussycat Doll (pictured above) claims the show’s creator often just repeats what she says — with his repetition usually making it into the final cut that’s shown on TV.
‘I’ve had to tell him off, he’s stealing all my lines,’ Scherzinger said at the launch of The X Factor’s 2017 incarnation.
‘I say, “I just said that, you’re repeating the same thing”, and he says “not in the edit, darling”.’
Fellow judge Louis Walsh backed up Scherzinger’s claims.
He said: ‘What a lot of people don’t realise is she will say something very intelligent about a song or about an artist and Simon will repeat it and then he will say to Nicole “guess which one is going to be used”.’
Scherzinger added: ‘Now we do when a thing when he’s talking I try to speak over him so they can’t use it.’
The show will return to ITV on Saturday at 8pm, with Sharon Osbourne once again on the judging panel with Cowell, Scherzinger and Walsh.
