The cat who got the Cole: A relaxed Nicole Scherzinger leaves X Factor storm behind her to join the stars at Monaco Grand Prix


All smiles: Nicole Scherzinger looks happy and relaxed as she strolls through the enclosure at the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo earlier today

Last week, she found herself at the centre of a growing storm when it emerged she had replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge on the U.S. version of the X Factor.

But Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger looked like she didn't have a care in the world in Monte Carlo earlier today, as she watched boyfriend Lewis Hamilton race in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Looking happy and relaxed in a grey and black patterned minidress, white sandals and a large oversize floppy hat, the 32-year-old singer smiled as she strolled through the race crowds.

She was also pictured holding an umbrella over her 26-year-old British boyfriend before the race to shade him from the Monaco sunshine.

The star was clearly enjoying some relaxation time before she is due to return to the U.S. where she will take Cheryl's place alongside Simon Cowell, L.A.Reid and Paula Abdul.

Nicole had originally been co-hosting the show alongside Steve Jones, but will now replace Cheryl after she was fired from the show.

At one point, she was seen sporting a pair of headphones and watching the action intently from a raised platform.

Nicole joined a slew of other celebrities at the Monte Carlo circuit for what has become known as Formula One's most glamorous Grand Prix.

Accordingly, the stars were pulling out all the stops in the glamour stakes.
