Nicole Scherzinger is set to get hitched to Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, according to the singer's dad.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday's Review, Afonso Valiente appeared to confirm the celebrity couple's plans to marry by commenting: "Yes, they are engaged".

He remarked: "You know about the proposal? My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down to earth. The family all like him. The good spirit is there."

Continuing with the platitudes towards the McLaren driver, he went on: "He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy. When they came to visit, we hired them a Jeep because he had never driven one before."

However, a spokesperson for Hamilton denied the engagement in a statement to the newspaper.

The pair have been dating for four years, although tabloid rumours of a split surfaced last year.

Scherzinger replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge on the US version of The X Factor earlier this year.
