Heat magazine today brings us the news that Dannii Minogue wasn't paid £750,000 to leave The X Factor 2011. According to magazine the suggestions - which as far as we know haven't been made up until this article - are "complete nonsense".

A source told the magazine: "Her getting a pay-off is nonsense. She wasn’t even under contract – they’re not going to give her money for nothing.”

The source added that there was no "bad feeling" from Dannii after X Factor bosses changed dates for new judge Gary Barlow, but not her.

"When she made her decision, she didn’t know who the other judges were, but reading between the lines, it looks as though they might have changed the dates to suit him," the insider revealed.

“She couldn’t do those dates anyway and so was prepared to walk away. But there’s no bad feeling.”

The line up for The X Factor 2011 panel is expected to be announced within the next few days.
