Nicole Scherzinger may claim she's one year away from her 40th birthday but fellow X Factor Judge, Louis Walsh claims she may be telling a white lie about her age.
In a recent interview with Heat Magazine Louis said:"It's great that she can still do all of it at her age. Nobody knows what age she is, but she's older than she says she is."
It appeared he then realised what he said and tries to cover himself by adding: "That shows how well we can get on. I can say things like that."
To be fair it's not the first time Nicole has had doubts surrounding her age. Back in 2008 she admitted she had just turned 30 but, according to the official Pussycat Dolls website she was listed as 28 years of age. Hard luck!
However, Nicole isn't one to let things slide and has came out branding Walsh a 'lier'.
Speaking to The Sun, she said:"I wish I was lying about my age, I have never lied about my age.
"I should have started lying a long time ago."
She added: "I'm just really grateful that Louis is still with us, really grateful." Sly dig?!
We're now extra excited to see the shots firing on the X Factor!
