Dannii Minogue to return to the X Factor judging panel?

Ever since that unauthorised biography of Simon Cowell hit the shelves last month, there have been a lot of rumours floating around about an alleged romance between him and his old X Factor co-star Dannii Minogue. But apparently all that's behind them and Simon has reportedly even started negotiations to bring Dannii back as a judge for the 2012 series of the ITV talent show.

Dannii Minogue to rejoin Simon Cowell's X Factor UK?

Now that Louis Walsh, Tulisa and Gary Barlow have all been confirmed to return for this year's X Factor, we've been wondering who would be filling the fourth seat on the judging panel. It might not be as unfamiliar face as we were expecting though, as according to reports Dannii could be taking back over from her replacement, Kelly Rowland.

An insider told the Sunday Mirror: "Simon thinks she's great - they are still friends. If it works out, then it will be fantastic for X Factor.

Having just broken up with other half Kris Smith, Dannii is apparently keen to make a return to the X Factor, after failing to make last year's show due to filming committments for Australia's Got Talent.

"No formal offer has yet gone out but this is likely to happen in the next few days," the source added.

She's not the only old face that could be returning either, as apparently Simon is also trying to secure Katy Perry as a guest judge after she did so well filling in for Dannii when she was off dropping a sprog in 2010.

But what do you think - Do you want to see Dannii back on the judging panel, or do you have someone better in mind? Comments below please..
