Nicole Scherzinger has joked that she did Simon Cowell a big favour when she suggested that solo acts Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik form a group.

The former Pussycat Doll light-heartedly said that she feels personally responsible for the success of One Direction after putting them together when she appeared as a guest judge on The X Factor.

Scherzinger explained to Now: "Oh yeah, I helped him out so much when I came on that show. I practically put One Direction together with my hands tied behind my back - just joking!"

The 'Poison' singer is now a judge for The X Factor USA after replacing Cheryl Cole on the panel.

"I'm really excited to be working with Simon again," the 33-year-old said.

One Direction who will release their first song later this year, have admitted that it took them "a long time" to find their lead single.
