With all the attention still on Cheryl and exactly who will be announced as judges on The X Factor UK, we nearly missed this story. According to News of The World, former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is fighting to save her relationship with Kris Smith after a number of rows with each other.

Perhaps hinting at her heartbreak, Dannii cryptically tweeted last week: "Never chase love. If it isn't given freely by another person, it's not worth having. Forgiving someone does not mean forgetting what they did. It simply means letting go of the hurt."

Kris added: "You don't know what you've got til it's gone."

However the pair deleted their tweets just days after sending them.

A source told the newspaper: "Kris is not happy about Dannii's heavy workload, and wants her to spend more time with him and baby Ethan, and has put his foot down.

"Dannii is not happy about having to choose between work and family, and they have been arguing about this recently."

Meanwhile a pal of the pair, who have a 10-month-old baby together, revealed: "There have been some very rocky times lately. She has made a decision to put the relationship first by refusing to commute between Australia and Britain for The X Factor.

"It would be awful for them to break up now after everything they've been through."

Dannii quit The X Factor three weeks ago, saying the dates for the audition shows made it impossible for her to take part in the series.
