London: Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton are planning a series of secret meetings in the hope of rekindling their four-year relationship.

The 'Don't Hold Your Breath' hitmaker and the Formula 1 driver, who split in October, are hoping to reunite to spend some "proper time" together over the coming weeks, according to reports.

"It's a struggle to maintain a blossoming relationship during the F1 season. Lewis is so busy and in a different country every other week. When they can't see each other they use things like Skype, but that's no substitute for the real thing. With no F1 distractions, Lewis aims to spend some proper time with Nicole. He can't wait," a source said.

Despite the split, Hamilton recently said that the couple still have "strong feelings" for each other, and are hopeful they can give their relationship another try.
