X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow hints that Dannii Minogue is coming back!

Gary Barlow seems to have dropped a bit of a hint that Dannii Minogue may be returning to the X Factor.

The Take That star was the first person confirmed as returning to the show last month and it has subsequently been revealed that he will be joined by Irish music manager Louis Walsh and N-Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos.

However, Kelly Rowland released a statement saying that she would not be back for a second series and one person who has been linked to the role since has been former judge Dannii Minogue.

Insiders reported that the Australian star is in secret talks with Simon Cowell and ITV about making a comeback to the series and Gary Barlow for one seems to be in support of the move.

The dad of three retweeted a comment made by one of his fans to his 1.5 million followers, saying:

“bring back @DanniiMinogue.”

Minogue is currently starring in Australia’s Got Talent, which moves into it’s live semi final stage this Wednesday night. It is thought she could be back in the UK for the auditions which start later this month.

She has however remained tight lipped about both her X Factor future and her affair with Simon Cowell. We wish she’d just speak out already!

    I tell you who I would like to see in the line up for X Factor judges ..

    1. David Walliams (Love him on BGT)or Shayne Ward (faints!)
    2. Louis Walsh (because he’s Irish!)
    3. Natasha Bedingfield (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7k0a5hYnSI) (brilliant song)
    4. Pixie Lott

    (A) No more bickering judges please
    (B) Reduce the big productions for each artist to perform – original raw format was the best.
    (C) Bring back a public Wildcard for each judge and give us 2 artists to choose from; that’s 8 performers, only 4 winners to join the first announced contestant for the live show
    (D) Bickering judges make both contestant and home viewer feel uncomfortable – viewer switches off..
    (E) Follow original American Idol format and introduce a famous mentor to contestants; AI had Barry Manilow one week & Jennifer Lopez – they were great.
    (F) No promotion of guest judges’ new album please, the X Factor is about NEW TALENT ..

    Finally .. open the voting lines to Ireland please on both ITV and TV3 (Ireland)

    No to Tulisa, Danni, Cheryl and definitely Kelly and No to Alexandra Burke – Get rid of Gary Barlow, Gawd he’s awfully grumpy and boring.

    I personally think she is mad to go back and I am a Dannii fan. After her act winning two years ago, she no doubt will get a rubbish category this time, because the producers will not want her having the winning act again. They will make sure Tulisa wins again, or Gary gets his first win. Louis and Dannii will have the weak categories if Dannii goes back. Louis will get the groups, Dannii the overs, Tulisa the boys and Gary the girls.

    Oh well, I do not think Dannii needs to have the winning act though, considering she has had mentored two winners, she has more than proved herself as a mentor. I wish she wouldn’t go back, but I think she will.

    It is nice that Gary and Tulisa are showing Dannii support though. They do not have to be nice about her, but they have been. Dannii is lucky to be getting the support from them.
