Nicole Scherzinger and racing driver hit it off right away

Are Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton an item?

The Baby Love singer, 29, really hit it off with the racing driver at the MTV Europe Awards on Thursday night.

‘She’s beautiful,’ Lewis, 22, said at the ceremony. ‘Can you feel the heat, man?’

The pair were seated at the same table and soon got talking.

Lewis looked very much like the cat who got the cream when he found himself sitting next to Nicole at the show,’ says an onlooker.

‘He couldn’t stop smiling as they chatted for ages about music and how much of a fan he was of her work. They were very touchy feely.’

Lewis and Nicole continued getting on well at a private post-awards party at a club, where the two were seen whispering to each other.

‘By the end of the night they were both roaring with laughter together,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘At one point, Lewis leaned over and whispered in her ear, “Do you want to go somewhere more intimate?”‘
