As Simon Cowell meets with producers to discuss the future of his popular UK talent show, The X Factor, rumorville states that mom-to-be Dannii Minogue might be axed from the show because she is pregnant.
A source claims that Dannii’s return is “highly unlikely,” but the execs are worried about a backlash.
Simon and his team are very wary of getting into the sort of problems the BBC has had with its female stars over age and so on,” the source states. “For that reason, the best option is being seen as reverting to the three judges this year. That means the seat is open for Dannii to return at a future date, although it is unlikely.”
Dannii, 38, has already announced that she will not be attending The X Factor auditions, but would still like to be part of the show.
