London (ANI): Aussie singer Dannii Minogue has said that she will be back as the judge for the next 'X Factor' series - despite the fact that she doesn't get along well with her fellow judges. According to reports, Simon Cowell regularly snubs her on the talent hit, while Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole also appear to freeze her out.
However, in a recent interview, the 37-year-old told TV Biz that Simon, 49, has already offered her a contract for a third year on the series. And she has slammed reports that she was so fed up with being overshadowed by new judge Cheryl Cole, 25, that she wanted to quit. "There have been lots of media reports that I'm not returning but I"m being told by the producers and by Simon that I am coming back next year and I would love to," The Sun quoted Dannii as saying.
Adding fuel to the fire, Simon has said that Cheryl and Dannii were "not about to have dinner any time soon". However, Dannii admitted that she doesn't like spending time with any of the other panellists on the ITV1 show.
"I don't socialise with the other judges outside of the show. The show is a big media thing from start to finish. As a judge you get caught in the middle of this kind of reality TV," she said.
