Things are hotting up on the X Factor as the contestants battle it out this weekend at judges’ houses.
They’ve all jetted off to various exotic locations to prove to their mentors – Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh – that they deserve a spot in the live shows.
Nicole is mentoring the boy’s category this year and they’ve joined her in the glamorous South of France for judges’ houses.
The contestants each shared their thoughts on having Nicole as a mentor:
Matt Terry said: “We did some filming where she went jet-skiing with us but when she came to meet us she walked out of the water like some sort of Bond girl. She looked so hot, I thought I was going to pass out!”
âI havenât had the chance to speak to her just one-on-one. Itâs easier when youâve got the boys around you because itâs not as scary. I know the minute I have some time on my own with her Iâm not going to be able to get my words out, sheâs that beautiful.â
Ryan Lawrie said he was excited about having Nicole as a mentor adding: “Sheâs young and she knows my style of music so itâs great sheâs there. We did some filming with her yesterday on a jet-ski and we were all saying she looks like a Bond girl. Sheâs hot.”
Freddy Parker added: “She looks sensational on TV and then you meet her in person and sheâs crazy beautiful. I actually find myself lost for words when Iâm around her! Sheâs so calm and casual and Iâm like, âDonât say anything stupid!â.”
Niall Sexton said: “I donât think anyone, guy or girl, can say they donât fancy Nicole, they would be crazy. Itâs weird though because she makes you feel so comfortable when youâre around her, which is so nice.”
Christian Burrows said: “Sheâs the ultimate Bond girl. My mates are going to die when they see what Iâve been doing with her out in Nice, itâs insane.”
