X Factor 2010: Alexandra Burke to stand in for Dannii Minogue?

Alexandra Burke has sparked rumours that she may be acting as a stand in judge on this series of The X Factor.

Burke, who won the show in 2008, has previously admitted that she’d love to return as a judge or a mentor and now that regular panelist Dannii Minogue is on maternity leave, the time could be perfect for the star.

Speaking to Metro, Burke commented: “I’d love to be a judge on The X Factor. I would really love to. But I can’t really comment on that.

“It would be great. I love the show. But I’m not sure what’s going to happen. It’s up to Simon [Cowell] at the end of the day. It’s all in the future.”

Simon Cowell has already recruited stars such as Geri Halliwell, who judged the Glasgow auditions, Natalie Imbruglia, who stood in on the Birmingham rounds. Katy Perry and Pixie Lott will make their appearances later this month.

We don’t know about you lot, but we’ll be glad to have Dannii back at the end of all this….so far no one has matched up to the Aussie beauty!
