Dannii Minogue returning to The X Factor?

Dannii Minogue is reportedly returning to 'The X Factor'.

The Australian beauty - who was axed from the UK version of the ITV talent show in 2010 - will make her comeback after judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini demanded Dannii to come back for the judges houses stage of the show, which will go live for the first time ever.

A source revealed: "'The biggest news this year is the return of Dannii Minogue - she has been requested by Cheryl. Dannii is doing her judges' houses for the Australian version of the show in the UK this year and as Cheryl is doing hers in France, it's quite an easy distance for Dannii to travel."

Simon Cowell is said to be on "good terms" with Dannii and knows she is "one of the best judges for spotting talent".

The source told Metro newspaper: "Him and Dannii are on good terms and he knows she is one of the best judges for spotting talent he has ever worked with."

Meanwhile, 'The X Factor' boss is said to want singer Paloma Faith to be his guest star on the show, while judge Nick Grimshaw is said to have paired up with Jess Glynne and Cheryl with Danii.

Now all eyes are on new judge Rita Ora who is yet to find a musician to team up with.
