Nicole Scherzinger brought a huge entourage with her to IKEA in London to shop for furniture

Nicole Scherzinger brought a huge entourage to IKEA to shop for furniture. While the X Factor judge was happy to browse the aisles along with her fellow shoppers in London, she stood out because of wearing sunglasses indoors while followed by a group of her own staff.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''We were surprised to see her but you couldn't miss her.

''She was wearing huge black shades and a big hat and was followed by a large entourage.''

Nicole recently moved to the English capital and while she initially struggled, she has now settled in.

She said: ''For the first couple of days I was homesick, but I'm starting to find I'm fitting in quite well at being a Londoner. I love the people here, so that's really helped. And I've made my place a little bit more cosy with fairy lights and candles and yummy blankets.''

She also admitted she and boyfriend Lewis Hamilton have to ''fight'' to keep their five-year romance on track because they spend so much time apart.

She said: ''It is tough. It's challenging and it makes things interesting, but it works. You have to fight for it.''
