Dannii Minogue talks about her X Factor nightmare (NEW PICTURES!)

by Lisa McGarry

Dannii Minogue has lifted the lid on her nightmare first year on ITV’s X Factor.

Simon Cowell asked the singer and actress to join the panel of his UK reality TV show back in 2007, after seeing how popular she had become on Australia’s Got Talent. The former Home and Away star was delighted with her new job and looked forward to joining Simon, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne on The X Factor, but she hadn’t accounted for matriarch Osbourne’s nasty tongue.

Sharon made no secret of the fact that she hated Danni and many speculated that she felt threatened by her glamour and youthful beauty.

In her extracts of her new book, which will be published in The News Of The World this Sunday, Dannii admits:

“What could have been a dream job turned into a nightmare.”

She also talks about her controversial decision to strip for Playboy. She reveals “I was in the s*** financially and that’s all there was to it. I couldn’t turn it down.”
