Dannii Minogue leaves X Factor for Top Model

Dannii Minogue
Dannii Minogue has reportedly turned her nose up at an impressive $1.5 million offer from Simon Cowell to return to her former judging position on the next season of X Factor UK.

Instead, the youngest Minogue sister will join fellow Aussie and host Elle Macpherson along with model Tyson Beckford in the search for Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model.

With her own clothing label, Project D, under her belt, this further foray into fashion seems like a good fit for the multi-faceted celeb.

"Dannii loves the fashion world and this show is perfect for her," a source told British tabloid The Sun.

Although, given recent reports of an affair between Dannii and music mogul Simon Cowell, many are questioning whether her refusal to return to the X Factor judging chair could be more personal rather than professional.

"I had a crush. It was genuine love," Simon told The Sun earlier this year.

X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger will now be crossing the pond to replace former judge Kelly Rowland, who confirmed she will not be appearing for a second season of the UK TV show.

Having spent the last two years working on Australia's Got Talent with Brian McFadden, reality TV host Minogue wrote on her blog; "I'm ready for the Top Model search and it's great to be returning to UK TV… Messages from fans on Twitter and Facebook over the last few years have been my inspiration to come back for the right opportunity.”
