X Factor: Dannii Minogue won't be back as judge in UK

Dannii Minogue

Dannii Minogue has confirmed she WON'T be back as a judge on the X Factor in the UK.

Dannii said she's really disappointed, but the timing of auditions for the new series clash with her judging commitments on Australia's Got Talent.

As Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole have joined the new American X Factor, Louis Walsh is the only UK judge left!

Take That's Gary Barlow and Tulisa from N-Dubz are rumoured to be joining him, but nothing's been confirmed yet.

Fans of the show won't have too long to wait though, as filming for the new series is due to start in the next couple of weeks.
