Dannii Minogue

Dannii Minogue is reportedly in talks to return to The X Factor next year.

It had been claimed that Simon Cowell had wanted the Aussie star, who was a judge on the show between 2007 and 2010, back on the panel this year.

According to an updated chapter in Simon's biography Sweet Revenge, Dannii was offered £2 million to make a comeback, but snubbed the offer.

However Dannii has been spotted in meetings with ITV1 bosses this week, prompting rumours she could be preparing to return after all!

An insider told the Daily Mail today: "Dannii was a significant element in the huge success of The X Factor. Viewers love her. Simon and Peter realise that now, but so does Dannii, so she holds all the cards."

The source added: "The BBC have also expressed an interest in working with her. But she’s also met independent production companies to discuss working on her own TV projects. She wants to be back on screen in the UK."

Speaking to Daybreak's Lorraine Kelly earlier this week, Dannii said that the X Factor has been a "big part" of her life.

She added: "I’ve kept in contact with my X Factor contestants that I’ve mentored, and it’s really cool – it’s been a big part of my life.”
