Nicole Scherzinger doesn't fancy men who think they are hot.

The 35-year-old stunner - who split from Formula One racing pro Lewis Hamilton in June - is attracted to someone who is funny, genuine and attentive.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''If you can make me laugh. I look for a guy who has a great sense of humour and is just cool.

''I don't like guys who think they are hot - that is a turn-off. You just want a guy who is genuine and has got a good head about him.

''And a guy that gives and is attentive.''

Nicole is glad her and Lewis are on talking terms since their families bonded with one another during their five-year relationship.

She explained: ''We're friends and it's just nice that we're talking again. I don't know what the future holds.

''I think it is always good for people to work on themselves and then their friendships first. Our families are close.

''That happens when you are with someone for five years. So it's good we are friends .

''But I am not into dating mode. I have been so focused on work and I don't know what the future holds.''
