Dannii 'not organised' for X Factor style showdown

Dannii Minogue is prepared to lose this year's 'The X Factor' fashion war.

The 38-year-old judge - who gave birth to baby son Ethan just three months ago -admitted while last year she spent weeks planning her outfits for the live shows, this time around she just hasn't been able to fit it into her busy schedule, and is prepared to concede defeat to fellow judge Cheryl Cole.

She explained: "Last year at this time I had pretty much organised every outfit, but this time I am only just starting to get stuff together and we are only a couple of weeks away.

"I am completely unorganised so I will be excited if I get out with a frock on the right way and I haven't got my shoes on my head."

The 38-year-old star - who was widely deemed to have beaten co-star Cheryl in the fashion stakes last year - explained she is concentrating on being a "good mum" rather than worrying about getting in shape ahead of the live 'X Factor' finals.

She said: "You can only do the best you can do and I have not been crazy about losing the baby weight because it is just important for me to concentrate on being a good mum right now."

However, one thing the new mum is concerned about is whether she will be able to "mould" the contestants in her category - the Boys.

Dannii added to The Sun newspaper: "It's very hard as you think, 'This one's got the perfect vocals but has he got the X Factor?' And do I want someone who I can mould or not?"
