Nicole Scherzinger was throwing it back to 2012 behind-the-scenes at The X Factor and reunited with her former hopefuls from that series, James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas.

Yup, four years ago it had been James and Jahmene battling it out for that number one spot on the show and they had the likes of Nicole helping to mentor them to success. James went on to win that series, while Jahmene finished in second and both have kept in touch with Nicole since stepping into the spotlight.

In fact, when James performed on The X Factor on Sunday night (9 October), Jahmene couldn't resist popping along too and catching up with Scherzy.

Nicole shared a photo of the trio to Instagram. In her snap, the former Pussycat doll can be seen pouting like a pro while being held up by James and Jahmene. All that was missing, though, was a certain Rylan Clark-Neal.

You see, Rylan had been Nicole's third boy that she brought with her to the live shows. He was probably the most controversial contestant that year and bowed out of the show a little earlier than James and Jahmene, finishing in fifth place.

Captioning her photo, Nicole said: "We missed you Rylan for the Scherzy boy picture! You were too busy being fabulous on #xtrafactor. Scherzy boys for life!!"

Rylan is currently presenting The Xtra Factor alongside Matt Edmondson on ITV2.

Nicole's latest Instagram post comes after we recently caught up with the X Factor judge. She spoke to Reveal about James' recent success with his new track 'Say You Won't Let Go'.

James made his musical comeback with the song and it reached number one in the charts. He has now re-signed with Simon Cowell's record label, Syco.

Nicole told us: "It's been really hard for James, I'm not going to lie. There's been a lot of negativity out there, unnecessarily, and haters. I've always told him, 'Put it in the music, I know it's hard, but if it's meant to be, it will happen.' I'm so proud. It's just so great to see that he is on top now. I've always thought the world of him."

Jahmene, meanwhile, shared Nicole's photo to his Twitter page and tweeted alongside it: "#Throwback to Sunday at @TheXFactor with @JamesArthur23 & @NicoleScherzy #TeamScherzy 4 years on! Love these two. #Xfactor #ScherzyBoy."

He also shared a snap with Rylan and told his followers: "#TeamScherzy This guys energy just gives me so much LIFE! @Rylan - Heart of Gold. Always good to see you! @TheXFactor #Xfactor #Brother."
