Minogue won last year's series with Scottish singer Leon Jackson
Dannii Minogue has said it is too early to rule out a confrontation with fellow X Factor judge, singer Cheryl Cole.
In an interview with the Radio Times the singer said: "Everybody's jumping on me going, 'What's Cheryl like? Are you two fighting yet?'
"Well, I've only had a few days of filming with her so far, so let's wait and see," the 36-year-old added.
Girls Aloud star Cole has replaced Sharon Osbourne on the judging panel for the fifth series of the contest.
'Won't be missed'
There was speculation that 55-year-old decided to leave the show because of a series of rows between her and Minogue.
"We weren't friends," said Minogue, "We weren't always fighting, but Sharon made it clear that she didn't like me, so she won't be missed. Not by me."
The Australian singer who now thinks "The new line-up works brilliantly," also revealed how she told newcomer Cole: "Have fun. Enjoy it."

"We're all so passionate about music, this is what we love, so just be yourself. That's what people want to see. It'll be interesting to see how she handles it," she added.
Cole has made comments about Minogue's appearance in the past, saying: "She doesn't look natural. I don't think men find her attractive."
Minogue, who joined the show in 2007, said how she lives for the extrovert characters that audition for the programme.
"Sometimes you're laughing right at them and they don't see it. They're in their own world. It's like we're not even there," she said.
The new series of X Factor starts on Saturday.
