Let It Shine judge Dannii Minogue has explained why the show is better than The X Factor.

At least in her view.

Ahead of the Let It Shine final on Saturday night, the Aussie singer has said she's loved her time on the BBC One series more than other shows she's done.

"It'll be sad to get back on that plane," Dannii admitted. "I've enjoyed the series so much. We have had so much fun.

"And the final will be awesome, as Robbie [Williams] is back! So Take That are reuniting!"

The former X Factor judge explained: "The hours are less, there's no mentoring involved, it's less time-consuming.

"And so it makes juggling the education of my son more doable - given that he's educated on the other side of the planet!"

Dannii also reckons that Let It Shine is better than rival shows like The X Factor or The Voice UK because it's about the contestants rather than the judges.

"We're not pitching against one another," Dannii told the Daily Mail newspaper. "And we're not being pitted against other judges.

"It's just relaxed and fun."

Dannii added: "Let It Shine is based on the performers, not us. It's about the performance."

The Let It Shine final will air on BBC One on Saturday night with Dannii, Gary Barlow, Martin Kemp and guest judge Robbie Williams.
