Dannii Minogue

Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue has snubbed an offer to return to the show.

The Aussie singer was apparently being 'wooed by Cowell', which makes feel sorry for the poor girl, that sounds like the last thing anyone wants before Christmas.

Instead of The X Factor, Dannii has instead joined Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model as a judge.

Dannii will join the Sky Living series in the new year alongside Elle Macpherson an Tyson Beckford.

A supposed insider told The Sun newspaper today: “This is two fingers up to Cowell.

“She is definitely not going back to The X Factor and can’t wait to get working on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model.

“Dannii loves the fashion world and this show is perfect for her.”

Dannii previously confirmed she had been given an offer to return to the show, but snubbed the opportunity having spent three years on the programme already.

Turning attention to her new series, Dannii said: “I’m ready for the Top Model search and it’s great to be returning to UK TV.

“Messages from fans on Twitter and Facebook over the last few years have been my inspiration to come back for the right opportunity.”
