The Aussie singer was ditched from the UK version of the show back in 2010, however, it’s now believed that she’ll be back on our screens for this year’s judges’ houses round.

A source tells the Metro: “The biggest news this year is the return of Dannii Minogue – she has been requested by Cheryl.
“Dannii is doing her judges’ houses for the Australian version of the show in the UK this year and as Cheryl is doing hers in France, it’s quite an easy distance for Dannii to travel.”
The judges’ houses round is facing a shake-up this year, and music mogul Simon Cowell appears to have made a huge decision, and will be broadcasting the rounds live, leaving presenters Caroline Flack and Olly Murs behind, in a London studio.
Another ‘X Factor’ mainstay looks set to be ditched too, as it seems Si’s finally had enough of Sinitta, who usually assists him.
“Simon isn’t happy with Sinitta," the source continues. “She looks set to be axed. However, he is so pleased to get Paloma [Faith] on board as he believes this will help draw her to sign up for a future series instead of ‘The Voice’.
“Him and Dannii are on good terms and he knows she is one of the best judges for spotting talent he has ever worked with.”
We’re going to assume Simon missed Sinitta’s recent interview with the Express, in which she stated: “If I'm not at Judges Houses there will be hell to pay. And I want you to print that.”
So… Who’s going to break it to her?
