He was awfully... catty (yes, yes, we know).

Nicole Scherzinger has responded to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s scathing comments about her departure from a new production of his musical, ‘Cats’.

Last week, the musical theatre composer blasted Nicole in an interview, claiming that she’d pulled out of ‘Cats’ on Broadway to re-join ‘The X Factor’ panel, suggesting she was “crazy” and had made him look an “absolute twot”.

She has now had her say, insisting that her place in the production was never finalised.

One claim Nicole did not address was the suggestion she was going to be back on the ‘X Factor’ judging team this year, following the departures of last year’s judges, Rita Ora, Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

From the most recent series, only Simon Cowell remains on the panel, with Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne both heavily tipped to be making a return to the show this summer.
