Nicole Scherzinger loves Christmas jumpers.

The 'Poison' hitmaker thinks a woolly sweater bearing a festive motif is the perfect garment to get people in the mood for the party season, and she was delighted to receive one as a gift from boyfriend Lewis Hamilton last year.

Giving her advice to boyfriends eager to treat their partners over the festive season, she said: ''Buy a motif sweater. My boyfriend Lewis got me one with a reindeer and snowflakes on last year.''

However, this year Nicole won't need her Christmas jumper as once her commitments as a judge on 'The X Factor' end, she is returning home to Hawaii for the festive season.

She added: ''It won't work this year though as I'll be celebrating in Hawaii, where I grew up. There, you wear a surfer bikini and Christmassy board shorts.''
