Dannii warns Sharon to keep her distance

Dannii warns Sharon to keep her distance

Dannii Minogue has warned Sharon Osbourne to stay away from her during 'The X Factor' live shows.

The Australian star - who claims Sharon bullied her when they were both on the judging panel in 2007 - knows her arch-rival will probably be at the studio on some Saturday nights as she is working with fellow judge Louis Walsh, but she wants nothing to do with her.

She said: "She is welcome any time, just not in my dressing room. I know they are great mates and I don't want to do anything to step in between that."

After an initial frosty relationship with Louis, Dannii says the pair now get on well.

She said: "It is just nice that now Louis and I can have our relationship and not be coloured by what anyone else is saying."

The 38-year-old beauty missed the audition rounds of this year's show after becoming a mum to son Ethan in July and while she loves motherhood, she was glad to get dressed up to film the Judges Houses phase of the programme.

She said: "It was the first time I'd got frocked up and put heels on again. Everyone could see how excited I was."

Despite rumours she is going to be axed for next year's show, Dannii says she has no intention of leaving.

She said: "Nobody gets employed for next year until the show ends. How can I be fired from a job I am not in? I love the show. It's something I really, really want to be involved in."
