X Factor bosses ‘want Danni Minogue back’ for newly revamped show

They're tempting her with a HUGE pay packet


X Factor bosses are reportedly keen to get Danni Minogue back on the judging panel, for their newly revamped show.

According to reports, the singer has been in talks with Simon Cowell’s production company Syco.

It’s believed the Aussie beauty is considering the deal, and bosses are tempting her with a hefty £300,000 pay deal.

A source told The Sun: “X Factor bosses would love to have Dannii back on the panel — she was part of the show’s dream team in its heyday. Her chemistry with the other judges was electric and she loved the role.”


Since leaving The X Factor in 2010, Danni became a mum to her son Ethan, who is now 9, and is happily dating music producer Adrian Newman.


The source continued: “She’s definitely tempted, and will always be loyal to the show as it gave her such a great platform, but she is really happy with her life now and isn’t sure she wants to rock the boat.”

“It would also be very dependent on who she sat next to on the panel as rumours at the time said she didn’t get on well with Sharon Osbourne.”

“Simon thinks it would be a real coup to have her and she is definitely someone he has mooted,” the source added.

Bosses are looking for a new judging panel, following the departure of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.

It’s also not known whether Louis Tomlinson will return for the next series – which will be a brand new all-star version of the show.
