Nicole Scherzinger has said that her career success has come at a price – because she has "no kids yet".

The ex-Pussycat Doll (38) is back on the panel of The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, after forging a successful solo career and a stint starring in the musical Cats.

But she told the Sunday Mirror that she had made sacrifices in her personal life.

"Look at me? I'm not married and I ain't got no kids yet. Of course work has come at a sacrifice. I've missed out on life," she said.

But Scherzinger said that she had not expected to have children by now.

"I see a vision of what I want as an artist. Now I'm going to the top of that mountain. When I get there, then I'll have time for a family, and kids," she said.

"It's a sacrifice when you put your heart into a job. Relationships suffer."

She had a seven-year relationship with Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton (31) and is now dating tennis star Grigor Dimitrov (25).

"He's a fan of The X Factor," Scherzinger said.

"He's very supportive."
