Dannii 'would return to X Factor'

Dannii Minogue would return to 'The X Factor' if Simon Cowell approached her.

The former mentor left the show last year citing a schedule clash with her role on 'Australia's Got Talent' but Dannii admitted she would jump at the chance to return to the pop star search show if show supremo Simon asked her.

Dannii said: "I haven't been watching it, I can't get it over here in Australia. It's part of my life and I do keep up with what the former contestants are doing, who's releasing what, I like to keep tabs on what's going on.

"For me I loved the mentoring and it's something that I could definitely see myself doing again. It's more of a question for Simon Cowell really. It's been amazing, I've had wonderful support and I do miss the show so watch this space."

However, Dannii - who won the show during her final series with her act Matt Cardle - has revealed she has kept up with the franchise by watching the Australian version which features Ronan Keating and Mel B.

Dannii said: "I've been watching the show out here in Australia and it was amazing. The guy who won the last series Reece Mastin is such a great rocker, I loved the show."
