Dannii in demand

Dannii Minogue may have exited The X Factor but she may yet land another UK TV gig following considerable fan reaction to her talent show departure.

Minogue has now been replaced by Kelly Rowland after production dates clashed with Australia’s Got Talent.

But BBC bosses are said to be keen to take advantage of the situation by offering her a role on its new singing contest, The Voice.

Sky and Channel 4 are also thought to have made bids for her.

“This episode is turning into a disaster for ITV. There has been an overwhelming response from X Factor fans saying they won’t watch now Dannii isn’t on the panel,” said one source.

“If she works on the BBC’s new show The Voice it would be a real blow for The X Factor. So ITV has offered several high-profile shows.”

BBC is also rumoured to have approached Robbie Williams about a job on The Voice, something that would put him in direct competition with Take That band-mate and new X Factor judge Gary Barlow.

  1. There’s no brand loyalty it would seem with these celebrity judges it would appear if she takes up the gig on the Voice.

    I never really understood the premise of getting foreign judges on a local talent show. You had an Aussie and now have an American on the UK edition and now you have and now have a Brit on the U.S version and a Brit on the Aussie version. Strange

  2. Not looking good for X factor UK. There is a time&place for a judges refresh but there have already been a lot of changes to it, some stability would have done it well.

    Well ITV have certainly shot themselves in the foot. This decision could backfire in the ratings. I do agree that having Kelly Rowland on the UK version of X Factor is stupid. Kelly should be on the US version and Cheryl Crow on UK version purely because of accents and it would be a good fit. I Hope Danni goes to the BBC the Voice has the potential to be the next big singing contest, especially with Danni on board.
