Dannii opens complaints floodgate

Almost 4,000 people have complained to TV regulator Ofcom for the comments Dannii Minogue made on The X-Factor on Saturday. On the show, after contestant Danyl Johnson’s performance, everyone’s least favourite* judge blurted out; "If we're to believe everything we read in the papers, there was no need to change the gender references [in the song he sang]."

The comment was in reference to tabloid speculation that Johnson was bisexual. Dannii was told to apologise on the Sunday show (11 Oct) but according to the Guardian there have been 3,885 complaints since the weekend. Dannii is said to be surprised by the reaction, although it was hard to tell from her expression.

*Change to 'annoying' if you're Dannii Minogue.
