Dannii Minogue puts baby before X Factor

New mum Danni Minogue leaves The X Factor for the sake of baby Ethan. Was she pushed or did she jump?

Dannii Minogue won’t return to this year’s X Factor, disappointed that show bosses clashed audition dates with her commitment to Australia’s Got Talent. Mum to baby Ethan, 10 months, Dannii would have had to fly to and from London to Australia multiple times.


“Dannii’s fuming. She was put in a terrible position of being told she would have to do that dreadful 25-hour flight countless times over the next few months if she wanted to do The X Factor. No attempt was made to move dates for her or to help her out. After a very tense week, she just said, ‘I’m a mum, how can I keep flying back and forth? I have a baby to care for’,” a source said, reports the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail also reported that ITV confirmed Dannii wasn’t going to be part of the show.

“We wanted to freshen up the panel. Although there was a clash of dates, it would not have been insurmountable if everyone had really wanted to keep her,” said an ITV source, reports the Daily Mail.
