Nicole upset holidaymakers during 'X Factor' filming

Nicole Scherzinger upset holidaymakers in Dubai when she filmed the judge's houses section of 'X Factor'.

The former Pussycat Doll singer - who replaced Kelly Rowland on the panel of the show this year - took 90 minutes to film her entrance at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in the city via boat, upsetting those staying at the five-star resort.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Several of the hotel's residents were kept waiting for more than an hour while they were trying to get back to their five-star suites after an afternoon jaunt.

"They weren't happy - these fantastically rich people are not used to being told they can't do what they want. But filming such an ambitious entrance takes a long time and the hotel were more than happy for 'The X Factor' to take over the jetty and the harbour until they had everything they needed."

While Nicole is in Dubai with the boys, Tulisa headed to St Lucia with the girls.

Gary Barlow stayed in London with the over 28s category and Louis Walsh - famed for often heading to Ireland - took the groups to Las Vegas.
