Simon Cowell calls Dannii Minogue on live television for the first time since she left UK X Factor
Tuesday 04 June 2013
Dannii Minogue has revealed that she and Simon Cowell have spoken for the first time since she left the UK X Factor.
Last year it was revealed Minogue, 41, and Cowell, 53, had a fling while Minogue was a judge on the show. She left in 2010 and is now a judge on the Australian X Factor, which is filming at the moment.
Minogue revealed to Grazia magazine that she was surprised to discover it was Cowell who called her on camera to reveal which group she would be mentoring on the show.
"Yes, that Simon," she said. "You'd laugh your socks off if you saw it. I've not spoken to him since I left the show, yet he chose to film that moment.
"I really wish you guys could see it. Simon has some balls doing that. I find it bizarre that he's never been involved in the Australian version of the show before and then I'm on it and suddenly he wants to break the news as to what group I have."
Minogue, who split from her partner Kris Smith a year ago, is mother to son Ethan, who will be three in July.
She revealed she would like to have more children.
"I think I want another," Minogue admitted. "But I can't just click my heels together and make it happen. I keep wondering how the hell I do it. Once Ethan got to two, he started doing the most adorable things and I was like 'Damn, I want another one'.
"All my gay friends have been asking if my ovaries are available for rent - they're close to running after me with a turkey baster."
:: The full interview appears in this week's Grazia magazine, which is on sale today.
