Nicole Scherzinger says her boyfriend has a "lovely" singing voice.

The former Pussycat Dolls star gushed about her beau Lewis Hamilton's impressive vocal abilities. The 34-year-old beauty has recently landed a role on the judging panel of The X Factor UK. The fiesty singer says her Formula 1 racing star boyfriend has a good vocal range, compared to some of the people she has heard sing.

"[Lewis' singing] is not bad at all!” Nicole exclaimed to Look magazine. "It's lovely".

Nicole hopes she will be able to spend more time with British racing driver Lewis while she is working on the talent show. The star performer reveals this may not be possible as The X Factor has a notoriously gruelling schedule. Similarly Lewis is kept busy with his motor racing which has dictated the couple's mainly long-distance relationship so far.

"We'll do our best to see each other more," Nicole said. "Hopefully... but this job takes a lot of my time and the shows are during his race weekends."
