Caroline Flack has insisted that X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger is much more down-to-Earth than people might think.
The former Pussycat Doll was accused of being boring during this year's audition stages, but the live shows have seen her come out with some of the year's most memorable one-liners and critiques.
Speaking to more!, Xtra Factor host Flack said: "This year I've got to know Tulisa more and I just like her so much. She's a girl's girl and one of those girls who would always have your back.
"And Nicole is a lot more down-to-earth than you think. She's another girl's girl!"
Caroline dated One Direction's Harry Styles earlier this year, and has since been linked to a string of men.
But, she says, she has not been involved with the vast majority of the companions she has been seen with.
"It's silly when I keep being linked to every man I'm seen with," she said. "And 99 per cent of things that are written about my personal life are not true."
