Dannii Minogue used Botox as her 'crutch' on The X Factor
Dannii Minogue turned to Botox to cope with the stresses of starring on 'The X Factor'.
The 45-year-old pop star appeared as a judge on the fourth series of the ITV programme back in 2007 and has revealed she relied on the age-defying injections as a means of boosting her self-confidence during her time on the show.
She explained: "There was a lot of pain in my personal life and I felt more settled using Botox. That was my crutch through the tough times. I'm clearly not using it now! I am in a good place."
These days, Danni is starring alongside Gary Barlow and Martin Kemp on the new BBC music competition 'Let It Shine'.
And while she still likes to look glamorous on a Saturday night, the Australian pop star is currently in a far better state of mind.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I have got a lot of fittings and have brought stuff over from Australia. People want to see a big Saturday night show. I love that side of it with all the dresses.
"I don't get nervous, I love live TV. That is part of the reason why Gary [Barlow] said 'Let's bring in Dannii.'"
Last month, meanwhile, Dannii said her long-running feud with her former 'X Factor' co-star Sharon Osbourne was "one-sided".
The duo have clashed numerous times over the years, but Dannii recently insisted she wants nothing more to do with Sharon, who returned to 'The X Factor' in 2016.
She said: "I honestly don't think about Sharon. I heard she was making comments about me again, and it's a one-sided argument that I'm not involved in. She's just not a part of my life."
