They had a playful spat this week, making jibes at each other about age.
But it was all fun and games for Nicole Scherzinger, 39, who revealed she would choose to kiss her X Factor co-judge Louis Walsh, 65, in a game of Snog, Marry and Avoid when quizzed on Good Morning Britain on Friday.
The stunner admitted that the show's head honcho, Simon Cowell, would be her 'Avoid' option, ahead of its return on Saturday, because he knows how to 'push her buttons.'
Joking during her interview, Nicole was asked who she would snog, marry and avoid out of Louis, host Dermot O'Leary, 44, and Simon, 57.
The cheeky star answered: 'Marry Dermot, everyone loves him - all my assistants are in love with him. Snog Louis and avoid Simon - I don't want to avoid anybody, but it has to be Simon because he knows how to push my buttons,' she added.
Continuing, she revealed why the music mogul gets on her nerves, revealing that he often steals her screen time with the exact same advice that she also dishes out.
Blaming Simon for copying her, she said whenever she says something good and thinks that it'll look good on screen the producers always choose to use Simon's version of the advice instead.

In his typically controversial manner, the Irish X music supremo began by praising the former Pussycat Doll's work ethic, before taking a swipe.
He told Heat Magazine: 'She may be out really late the night before filming but she's still on it. It's great that she can still do all of it at her age. Nobody knows what age she is, but she's older than she says she is. That shows how well we can get on. I can say things like that.
