The former X Factor judge shocked members of the audience with her remarks about Minogue.

Asked by Piers Morgan why she had quit the ITV1 show, Osbourne replied: "Dannii Minogue. All Dannii wanted to do was f**k Simon Cowell. That’s why she’s on the show."

Osbourne continued by criticising Minogue's cosmetic surgery and described her as a "mosquito you want to flick away".

Shaaaarooon quit the X Factor in July 2008 after reportedly seeking a salary of £2 million for the fifth series. "They offered £1.6 million but she ‘couldn’t bear to sit next to Dannii six more months’," a source told The Sun.

Dannii Minogue's Playboy pose

DanniiDannii Minogue has revealed she would consider posing nude in Playboy magazine for a second time.

Dannii Minogue would love to pose nude in Playboy magazine again.

The 36-year-old beauty - who first bared all in the men's publication at the age of 23 - would consider flaunting her figure for the second time if she was offered enough money.

She told Britain's New! magazine: "I did Playboy when it was cool and I shocked myself and many others, but it was liberating at the time. I would I do it again.

"If the money was right, then sure. Who knows, it might happen this year, too."

Dannii revealed she was first inspired to appear in the magazine following the breakdown of her marriage to 'Fantastic Four' actor Julian McMahon, which ended in 1995 after less than two years.

She said at the time: "I had just had a marriage break-up. Most women go to the hairdressers - I did Playboy. I chose the photographer, the location, what I did or didn't want to wear and everything else about the pictures. I found it a really liberating, empowering experience."

Dannii Minogue's Kylie duet

Dan1 Dannii Minogue says she would love to record a duet with her sister Kylie.

ody.content> Dannii Minogue wants to duet with her sister Kylie.

The Australian singer - who will soon be seen judging hopeful music acts on the new series of UK TV show 'The X Factor' - would love nothing more than to vocally collaborate with Kylie again soon.

She said: "I definitely want to do a duet, it's just about finding the right thing and the right time. I miss singing so I am planning to do some more next year. I did a duet with Kylie on her tour last year - we sang 'Kids' which was amazing. Every time we watch it back, we fall about laughing, especially when we are swinging each other around because we used to do that on roller skates when we were young.

"To us, that's us as kids, and as sisters, minus everything else. It was nice to share that. People think I don't like talking about Kylie but that couldn't be further from the truth. I understand why people ask about her. She is incredibly famous and loved by everyone so people want to know what it is like being her sister. That's normal. We are really different people so there has never been any competition."

Dannii also revealed despite being happy as a single woman, she would give everything up for "the right man".

She added to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I would for the right man. I curse my parents though. I say to them, 'It's your fault I'm single!' They gave us such a great childhood - my mother stayed at home while my dad went to work and I have such high hopes to recreate that.

"But at the same time, I love my career so I would struggle to choose between the two. And I spend six months in the UK and six months in Australia. Where am I doing to find a man who will do that?"

Dannii Minogue's big date with Lewis Hamilton

DanniiThose Minogue sisters seem to be perpetually unlucky in love, between them they've romanced many high-profile gents but it always seems to end in tears. However, younger sibling Dannii seems ready to take another stab at love having planned a big date with F1 ace Lewis Hamilton. Could this be the one for the X Factor judge?

The pair met at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne in March and seemed quite enamored with each other. A friend of Lewis' told The Sun: “Lewis has been texting Dannii like mad since they met in Melbourne. He took a real shine to her. Lewis thought she was gorgeous and was really impressed with her knowledge of cars. He wanted to take her out for dinner that night but she had something on that she couldn’t cancel. He’s kept at it and she’s finally agreed to meet him for dinner at the Monaco Grand Prix.”

Full marks to the speed demon for being so dogged in his pursuit of La Minogue. “Lewis is delighted they have finally set a date," confided the McLaren driver's chum. “It’s the earliest time they could both do. They will certainly have a lot to talk about. Dannii is quite knowledgeable about F1 thanks to her relationship with Jacques.”

Jacques being Jacques Villeneuve the Canadian former F1 Champion who she was engaged to back in the late 90's. That romance soon ran out of gas but Dannii is clearly impressed with her latest suitor: “I think the guy is incredible," commented Dannii. "He is mostly perfect in every way, shape and form.” Ooer – sounds like you're well in there Lewis.

Dannii Minogue Best Beauty Buys


We all wish we looked as good as Dannii, especially considering the ex Neighbours popstrel is  36. She looks amazing though with dewy skin and shining eyes, and as we see her wrangle with Simon Cowell on the X Factor teenage boys countrywide sigh a little deeper. To recreate that doe eyed look and flawless complexion we bring you her best kept beauty secrets so you can add a little X Factor to your own life!

To keep her makeup looking polished she uses Purple Dot Brushes which are made out of quality materials such as pure kolinsky sable and raccoon hair which is delicate on the skin. 'I love purple dot brushes,' says Dannii. 'The mini brush roll is perfect for me to travel with'.

Dannii likes to keep her eyeshadow subtle and heavily define her eyes in black. She uses  Jane Iredale eyeliners   to create a defined line. 'I use Jane Iredale Liquid Liner, but I'm not as good at doing the red lips so I apply lip balm and then fill in with a red pencil for a more muted take on it'. She likes to have her lips bold and bright , and a great lippie she uses is Gosh Lipstick in Lambada for a fiery red look.

She keeps her nails buffed and polished, and her favourite varnish brand is  Essie . ''I find doing my nails therapeutic- I love Essie nail polish in wicked'.

Dannii Minogue wants lesbian lapdance snaps


It's grainy and not really all that titillating, but sure enough, that's Dannii Minogue having fun with a lapdancer. Now for me, there's nothing that weird about a girl going on a night out and having a laugh with her mates at a lapdancing club... after all, women look a lot nicer than men with no clothes on don't they?

Obviously, all and sundry threw their arms up in despair when they found out that Kylie's sister was a lesbian. Even though she quite clearly isn't. Now, Dannii has ordered her lawyers to buy the rights to the photos taken last year. The X Factor judge is now hoping to get the images taken down from the internet. When the photos were first published, Minogue said: "I was totally set up. "It woke me up to the fact that there are some creepy, nasty people out there willing to do anything take advantage of someone famous."

If I was Ms Minogue, I'd leave them up. They don't damage her reputation, and really, all it shows is a girl out on the lash and having a laugh. In terms of people pawing over the snaps... well... she wore nothing but a smile in a calendar, so I wouldn't worry none.

In the news: Britney isn't singing with Justin and Amy Winehouse is nominated for the MOBO awards

75977381 -I find it strange how a white pop star can somehow be nominated for three MOBO's, then again, with Amy Winehouse I have started to find nothing out the ordinary in anything she does. Apparently her sound represents the best of black music, whatever that means. [The Independent ]

-Britney Spears has pulled out of a secret duet deal with Justin Timberlake, so secret that I hadn't even heard that it was in the works, so it's rather non news dontcha think? What I find more exciting is that she's been talking to her ex again. [Digital Spy ]

-Danni Minogue professes a love of the X Factor. She tells how she loves being a judge and how excited she is at watching promising new talent. "The youngest kids are amazing. They are so talented and fearless. The ones I love most are the ones that are neither cocky nor scared to show their vulnerability. We have also seen some amazing groups. I personally hope we can find the next Spice Girls." [MEN ]

-Dirty Pretty Things have a new gig lined up, at a rather unusual venue: Pentonville Prison. They plan to play to inmates there as part of a drive by the Samaritans to highlight vulnerable young men. Not everyone thinks it is a good thing though, as Mr Newman, a member of local Islington says, 'I don't actually know if the band are any good- maybe it's exactly what the prisoners deserve. perhaps they should get James Blunt down for a few sessions- that would be adequate torture.'

Dannii Minogue insists Louis Walsh sacking wasn't for publicity, while drumming up some herself

73144307X Factor's clearly imminent, is anyone excited? I didn't think so. Still though, they're all doing their best to drum up some excitement and publicity and new judge Dannii Minogue is throwing in her two cents in the Louis Walsh/Simon Cowell/you're fired mate debacle.

According to the Aussie pop minstrel the firing and re-hiring earlier this year was by no means a publicity stunt. And of course I believe her. Ahem. Minogue insisted that Simon Cowell is too fond of Walsh to have fired him for publicity, telling The Guardian: "Simon and Louis are such great friends. You couldn't do it as a PR stunt, but poor Louis! Imagine being upset and thinking your friend did that."

Minogue also maintained that Walsh's relationship with Cowell has survived his sacking, saying: "I tell them they are like two old women. They love chatting and catching up."

"It reminds me of the film Beaches when there are two girls on the sun-loungers with blankets on their knees - that's going to be Louis and Simon in their twilight years, looking out over the ocean."

A harsh rap for Louis but now that he's back the bitching between the pair can continue all over our screens, much to the delight of trashy TV lovers everywhere. Let's face it, it's the only reason the show's remotely worth watching these days, eh?

Russell Brand Is A Vile Predator According To Dannii Minogue

Russellbrand_1We first heard of Russell Brand's womanising ways when he seduced Britain's national treasure, Kate Moss, but we fear his taste is getting worse, as he recently pulled the moves on Aussie budgie, Danni Minogue. The singer lambasted Brand as being a 'vile predator' when she appeared on his show, and raved that he was 'completely crazy.' Brand is infamous for being a reformed sex and drug addict, but Danni claims 'I certainly don't think he has cured his sex addiction, that's for sure. He wouldn't take no for an answer...He always goes that step too far. Never quite far enough to slap his face, but usually too far.' I think you should be mighty chuffed that someone's actually interested in you for once, love!  [Katherine Hannaford]
