Minogue shocked by Cole feud claims
Dannii Minogue has admitted that she was shocked to be accused of jealousy after Cheryl Cole joined The X Factor.

Newspaper reports speculated that Minogue felt "pushed out" on the judging panel after the Girls Aloud star was recruited as a replacement for Sharon Osbourne in June.

"I never expect people to say weird stuff, like the fact I was bothered about Cheryl joining X Factor, so it always shocks me, even after all these years," Minogue explained.

"Everyone's putting this pressure on us to be best friends, but Cheryl and I get on as well as we can for how much we know each other. We don't hang out outside of work, but neither do I with the other judges. We're both very forceful and we'll have our differences of opinions, but it's not nasty or personal."

Minogue insisted that, if backstage arguments take place this year, they are more likely to be between Cole and her former boss Louis Walsh.

"There's so much other stuff - what about the fact Louis used to be Cheryl's manager and she fired him?" she asked. "And Simon and Louis can fight all day and no one will say anything. But with us, it'll be the Cheryl and Dannii show."
