Nicole Scherzinger has revealed how she is managing to battle homesickness.

The new judge on the X Factor UK is slowly adjusting to life in London since relocating from the US. Nicole has revealed the techniques she's adopted to help her feel at home while she completes her stint on the TV talent show.

"For the first couple of days I was homesick, but I'm starting to find I'm fitting in quite well at being a Londoner. I love the people here, so that's really helped. And I've made my place a little bit more cosy with fairy lights and candles and yummy blankets," Nicole joked to British magazine More. "I'm really liking it, actually. I didn't know what to expect - it's totally different from the US."

The 34-year-old former Pussycat Dolls member also discussed her relationship with Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton. She admits spending so much time away from Lewis – who travels all over the world to race – is testing at times.

"It is tough. It is challenging and it makes things interesting, but it have to fight for it," Nicole revealed.
