Danni Minogue has said she left The X Factor earlier this year due to her dropping weight. Speaking to London's Metro newspaper, Dannii insisted she wasn't given the boot by show bosses but rather was forced to quit due to health issues.
This year the show saw three new judges, as Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow all joined Louis Walsh on a new look panel.
Talking about her exit, Dannii revealed: "My thyroid stopped working and I had appendicitis. Leading up to that I was getting thinner and thinner, and stressing because I didn’t know what it was."
"When you're just had a baby you think it must be normal tiredness. But it got to the point where I thought, 'This cannot be normal'," she added.
Dannii Minogue has been linked to the new series of Britain's Got Talent on ITV1 next year.
