No X Factor return for Dannii Minogue
Former X Factor judge ruled out
DANNII Minogue will not be returning to The X Factor as a judge, talent show bosses have confirmed.
Talks with the former panellist about a possible comeback have ended, less than a week before the audition process begins.
Show bosses confirmed she will not be returning to the show and guest judges are being lined up to step in for the early stages of the contest.
Dannii was in negotiations to reprise her role on the show after last year’s panellist Kelly Rowland ruled herself out.
The Australian entertained the idea of a return despite disclosures that she and show boss Simon Cowell had an affair, which came to light last month.
But discussions have now foundered.
An X Factor spokeswoman said: “The panel will be confirmed shortly.”
