Dannii Minogue dropped by M&S after X Factor axe

Dannii Minogue

Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue has been dropped by M&S following her axe from The X Factor earlier this year. According to The Sun, the 39-year-old won't be fronting ads for the show after being booted off the UK's biggest telly show.

Dannii surprisingly left the series this year, despite revealing she was keen to return to the show. The Aussie star was ‘forced out’ of the series after the dates of this year’s auditions were moved to accommodate new judge Gary Barlow and meant Dannii could not commit to the new series.

However it was reportedly that the move was made in order to get rid of the star from the panel in order to make way for fresh blood. “Simon is a huge admirer of Dannii and loved working with her but the fact is he wanted new people this year,” a source said at the time.


Gary, US singer Kelly Rowland and N-Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos eventually joined the show alongside Louis, the only returning judge from last year’s show.

Now she's off of the show, Dannii's offers - which also saw her release a clothing line, perfume and autobiography last year - have "dried up".

Fellow M&S girls, singer VV Brown and model Ana Beatriz Barros, have also been ditched by the clothing giant, while Twiggy and Lisa Snowdon have both renewed their contact.

We suggest Cheryl stocks up on her free L'Oreal goodies while she still can...
