Dannii Minogue Set To Leave The X Factor Australia For UK Version?

21 October 2013

According to new reports Dannii Minogue could be making the shift back to The X Factor UK after producers were left impressed by her current stint on the Aussie version of the show.

The Australia version of the hit show underwent a massive judging panel shakeup this year – with Guy Sebastian and Mel B both leaving the show to be replaced by Minogue and RedFoo.

The UK is set to have its own reshuffle with Gary Barlow already confirming his exit – and speculation mounting that Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne will follow.

Dannii is set to jet back to UK next month after the Australian final for Boyzone’s 20th anniversary, with papers reporting that she will attend talks with producers during that time about being reinstated on the UK show.

Dannii’s time at the X Factor in the UK was not without its drama – with claims of a romantic relationship with Simon Cowell and a bitter feud with Osbourne.

Tina Arena, Sia Furler and Adele would be great for the Australian show.
