They have been seen together just a handful of times in the past few months but with the X Factor done and dusted Nicole Scherzinger finally has some time to spend with her boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.
The pair were looking very loved up as they attended the Jack Reacher premiere in Leicester Square on Monday night.
Nicole and her F1 racing beau were seen staring into each other's eyes as they hugged on the red carpet.
Lewis looked delighted to be spending some time with his girlfriend, who has been busy with the reality show since she joined the judging panel in June.
The 34-year-old singer looked suitably stylish for the event in a demure black dress.
The Zeynep Tosun garment boasted satin panels and quilted detail, cut out shoulders and a metal bow embellishment around her neck.
Nicole teamed the dress with a pair of black peep toe heels and a snake-print clutch bag.
She had her dark tresses pulled up into a tight bun.
On Sunday night Nicole was crowned the winning judge of the X Factor after James Arthur received the most votes from the public, but her fate was actually sealed on Saturday night after Christopher Maloney was booted out of the competition.
Nicole had shown off her vocal skills during the first of the final shows performing on stage with both her acts.
The former Pussycat Doll told Dermot that being on stage with James and Jahmene was her highlight of the series.
James won the show after scooping 54 percent of the public vote and was obviously shocked to have taken the top spot.
After the result was revealed the Middlesborough-born singer earned a standing ovation from the judges and brought the house down with his incredible rendition of Shontelle hit Impossible, which is now odds-on to be the Christmas No.1 single and has already topped the iTunes charts.
