Simon Cowell's son Eric ignores Nicole Scherzinger
Simon Cowell's son ignores Nicole Scherzinger.
The 'X Factor' judge loves it when the big boss brings his little two-year-old Eric, whom he has with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, into the studio on the day of the live shows but she can already see that the toddler has picked up his father's tendencies.
Speaking on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' on Saturday (29.10.16), she said: "I think he just cloned himself. He is just like Simon, he never listens to me. I'll say, 'Eric give me a hug' and he walks away. I'll say 'Do you want a cookie? Can I have a bite of your orange?' and he just ignores me. He goes to his dad all the time, he loves his dad."
However, although she can see the similarities between Simon and his little one, the Pussycat Dolls singer really enjoys sharing the panel with the cheeky music mogul.
She explained: "You never know what you're going to get. It's like a box of chocolates! All the time he's winding us all up, when we're speaking he's saying stuff in our ears like crazy things and we're like, 'Please we're trying to focus it is live!' He'll just say silly things like he'll try to throw us off, he's just having fun, it's good, he's in a good mood."
The 38-year-old singer is known for locking horns with her fellow judges Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Simon if they knock her contestants but she has admitted she doesn't mean it in a malicious way and is just defending her boys.
Nicole - who is mentoring The Boys category this year - said: "I come out guns a blazing as well, you feel like you want to protect them because you know how hard they've worked,you see where they've come from and you have no idea, you don't realise the work that you put in with the contestants and they work really hard."
'The Jonathan Ross Show' will air on October 29 at 9:50pm on ITV.
