Nicole Scherzinger, who had fans gaping at her dazzling dresses on the 'X Factor' week after week, has revealed just what she's going to be wearing this Christmas - a pair of not-so glamorous Spanx.
The suck-me-in control pants have fast become the go-to garment for celebrities and regular folk alike looking to banish the bulge and avoid the dreaded VPL.
Even slender young stars like Katy Perry, Tulisa and Kristen Stewart admit to wearing them, and everyone from Princess Beatrice to Kim Kardashian via Jennifer Lopez has inadvertently flashed a glimpse of their Spanx.
Scherzinger, who is dating Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton, said that she would be pairing her control pants with a push-up bra.
"I'll be wearing Spanx and a great bra to lift up those puppies!" the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Closer magazine.
"I can't wait to have Christmas with my family," she added, saying that she would be indulging on chicken, dumplings and pecan pie.
"There's no diet then. I like to pig out over Christmas and work it off in January. Then I'll go running in Hyde Park and do Bikram yoga classes. I also try to cut down on salty foods and eating late at night," she said.
Despite her fondness for a sequinned dress, Scherzinger plans to keep it real on Christmas Eve.
Her festive outfit is a funny Christmas jumper and jeans for Christmas Eve, and comfy clothes on Christmas Day. (ANI)
