Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and Mel B may be on the judging panel for this year's X Factor, but former judge Nicole Scherzinger reckons her year was the best!

Nicole, 35, was a judge on the ITV talent show for two years but will not be returning this year, as she is busy focusing on her solo music.

Speaking to Alan Carr on his Chatty Man show, which will air tonight (13 June), Nicole dismissed rumours that Simon tried to lure her back.

"No, I haven't heard from Simon," she said. "He made his choice so I'm just going to support everybody and it doesn't matter as my panel last year was the absolute best."

Nicole, who was joined on last year's panel by Gary Barlow, Sharon Osborne and Louis, continued: "No one can replace Gazza and Mrs O and Louis for me. But you know what, the show's going to be crazy this year. I know it's going to be a banger as you guys say over here."

Nicole said last year's panel was the best.

Nicole was also asked if she had any advice for Mel B, who was announced as the fourth X Factor judge this week.

"She's done this before," said Nicole. "She doesn't need any advice, she's gonna spice things up."
