Louis and Dannii won't be axed (says the same paper that yesterday claimed they would be)

Dannii Minogue

The Sun today reports that neither Louis Walsh nor Dannii Minogue will be axed from The X Factor this year - despite the paper's Sunday edition, News Of The World, just yesterday suggesting they would be. According to today's X Factor rumour mill, both Walsh and Minogue have been told to keep their diaries free.

Whilst neither have yet to sign any contracts, both are expected to sign a new deal within the next two weeks which will see them return to the hit UK show.

Yesterday it was reported that Simon wanted to get rid of both Louis and Dannii and completely re-invent the show with an entirely new panel. However bosses at ITV weren't convinced with the idea, with a source revealing: “Viewers love Dannii especially. Simon has never understood how popular she is. It’s important she is there, and for viewers to have a sense of familiarity.”

This whole thing is more confusing than Katie Waissel telling us we were seeing the 'real her' every week...
