Kelly Rowland confirms her X Factor exit, is Dannii Minogue taking her place?
We predicted a couple of weeks back that now Dannii Minogue has split up with Kris Smith, she might be up for another series of X Factor, and now that Kelly Rowland has confirmed her X Factor X-it, that looks like it might be the case. Just call us psychic.
It was pretty much a given that Kelly wouldn't be returning (despite her spokesperson saying there has been 'much speculation' - there really hasn't) and Tulisa has been chatting about who she'd like to join her on the show. She's said that she thinks Lily Allen would be great in the role (she'd be brilliant, no matter how unlikely it is) but told Daybreak earlier that it was likely Dannii would return.
"I always thought Dannii was great and I enjoyed watching her, so I'm sure we'd get along really well. It looks likely, but I know nothing."
Gary and Tulisa have already signed up, but Dannii Minogue would be a brilliant coup for Simon Cowell. After the tell-all biography discussing details of his sex life with Dannii, it would be tabloid gold for him even though he won't be on the show. Would Dannii want the attention? We're not sure, but we can't see anyone else taking the slot at this stage so our money is on Dannii, despite the sex stories.
Who do you think is taking Kelly's place? Who do you want to see on the show?
