'X Factor' guest judge Nicole Scherzinger has said that she isn't trying to replace Cheryl Cole on the panel for the show.

Speaking to the show's official magazine X, she said: "Oh my God, Cheryl's, like, the UK's darling."

"I don't know her personally, but I think she's just lovely at what she does on the show and how people connect with her and her story."

"As for filling her shoes, I would never try to do that because those are big shoes to fill."

"I think in any situation anyone should go into, they should come into it confidently with a positive attitude and be themselves and do their own thing. So that's what I tried to do."
