X Factor reject SLAMS Nicole Scherzinger: ‘She’s a c***!’


X Factor reject James Hughes has SLAMMED his former mentor Nicole Scherzinger.

The 17-year-old took aim at the X Factor judge in a foul-mouthed rant after losing his place in the show.

Speaking to Now magazine about being booted off the ITV talent show by Nicole, James exclaimed: “She’s a c***!”

“She’s so nice on camera but I felt she had no time for me once they stopped.”

The young singer also claimed that Nicole didn’t even pick her final three boys, suggesting that show producers made the decision for her.

“I don’t even think she picked her final three boys,” he said.

James lost his place on the show at the Judges’ Houses stage.

After performing in front of Nicole and Calvin Harris in the South of France, Nicole said, “’I don’t think it’s time for you yet. But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to get there.”
