Nicole Scherzinger is planning a Christmas getaway with Lewis Hamilton.

The singer will celebrate her 'X Factor' victory - after she became the winning judge on the British talent show when her act James Arthur won the series - by jetting off to Hawaii to celebrate the holidays with her boyfriend and her entire family.

The 34-year-old pop star - who has been with the Formula 1 driver for four years on and off - told heat magazine: ''Oh, that's going to be fun. I totally forgot about that. I'm going to be with my whole family there. In Hawaii, our Santa Claus wears surf shorts, it's so much fun.''

The former Pussycat Dolls star is looking forward to spending some quality time with her family and admits she has had to sacrifice many Christmases with her loved ones because of her hectic schedule.

She said: ''I spent one Christmas Eve travelling back from a tour in Europe to get back to my family in Kentucky, and I got stuck in the airport. It was devastating!''
