Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has split up with her Formula 1 star boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, her publicist has confirmed.

The pair, who got together around five years ago, have split several time before.

A spokeswoman for Scherzinger, who is filming the latest series of The X Factor UK, confirmed the split but would not comment further.

The news caps a bad couple of days for Mercedes driver Hamilton after a blown tyre ruined his chances of winning the British Grand Prix at Silverstone at the weekend.

The driver, who was in the lead when the blowout happened, dropped back to last place but managed to come back and ended the race in fourth.
