STUN­NING Ni­cole Scherzinger looks set to bring the SEX FAC­TOR back to our screens af­ter a big money of­fer from her for­mer boss Si­mon Cow­ell.

The 37-year-old is said to be in talks with mu­sic mogul Cow­ell over a move back to hit ITV tal­ent show The X Fac­tor.

Rat­ings for the re­al­ity con­test were down last se­ries with win­ner Louisa John­son clock­ing up the worst ever chart per­for­mance for a win­ner of the show.

And for­mer Pussy­cats babe Nic could be in for a multi-mil­lion pound deal if she signs up to the next se­ries, re­plac­ing ei­ther busty Rita Ora, Brave Ch­eryl Cole or Ra­dio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw.

A source said: “Rat­ings for The X Fac­tor have been steadily de­clin­ing since Ni­cole left and Si­mon Cow­ell is all too aware of the sex ap­peal she brings with her.

“And let’s face it, a cat fight be­tween Ni­cole and Rita Ora live on tele­vi­sion is go­ing to make for AMAZ­ING view­ing.

“Ni­cole’s peo­ple are in talks with Si­mon’s over a new deal which could be in the mil­lions.”

Ni­cole orig­i­nally ap­peared on the The X Fac­tor USA as a co-host and judge be­fore sign­ing up to se­ries nine and 10 of the UK ver­sion for a re­ported £3mil­lion.

The singer is cur­rently star­ring in Sky 1 panel show Bring the Noise, along with rap­per Tinie Tem­pah, 27, and Ricky Wil­son, 38.
