X-Factor boss Simon Cowell embarrassed American guest judge Nicole Scherzinger by getting her to call contestants a “tool”. He told the Pussycat Dolls singer that it meant someone had a good voice, when it is really slang for a fool, The Sun online reported.

Scherzinger, 32, who is dating Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, used the word to describe wannabes at the Manchester auditions when she was trying to praise them.

Cowell stepped in to tell her what it really meant, leaving her red-faced.
