Dannii Minogue to return to the X Factor

Dannii Minogue looks set to make a return as a judge on the popular reality show the X Factor. The former singer looked set to walk away from the ITV show after persistent rumours of a bust up with fellow judge Cheryl Cole.

However, The Sun claims that Simon Cowell is set to renew the Australian's contract after being unable to find a good enough replacement.

The Sun's mole told the tabloid: "The chances of Dannii making a return were looking exceptionally bleak as recently as a fortnight ago. Now Simon has given the green light for her return. The line-up is going to be exactly the same as last year, despite all the speculation."

Despite the hit show airing in the autumn, auditions for the X Factor 2009 are already underway with thousands of hopefuls taking part in preliminary auditions earlier this week at London's O2.
