Nicole Scherzinger addresses rumours she’s dating X Factor: Celebrity star Thom Evans

The X Factor star was booted off the show last week

Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has addressed rumours she’s dating X Factor: Celebrity star Thom Evans.

The rugby player competed on the show with fellow rugby stars Ben Foden and Levi Davis as boy band Try Star, but they were booted out of the competition last week.

Speaking on The Dan Wooton Interview podcast today, Nicole joked about the rumour, and admitted she thinks Thom is “lovely”.

“Oh really, there’s rumours about that?” she laughed. “Thom is lovely but what’s going on is that I am very busy.”

“It’s been a very transitional transformation year for me and I am really focusing on distracting myself with my destiny.”

The Pussycat Doll joked, “I don’t need a man,” referencing the band’s hit song.

Nicole was on the podcast with her Pussycat Doll bandmates, after announcing their major comeback.
