Dannii Minogue has insisted that she is proud of her performance as a mentor on The X Factor this year.

The Aussie popstar guided Leon Jackson and Rhydian Roberts to the top two spots on last year's series, but she became the first judge to lose all three of her acts as Ruth Lorenzo was eliminated last night.

Speaking afterwards on The Xtra Factor, Minogue revealed that keeping the Over 25s category intact until week six of the competition had been a record for the show.

She explained: "It wasn't a bad run. It's the longest the Over 25s have stayed in the competition."

Minogue was also backed by her co-stars Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell, who praised her for helping Lorenzo to exceed expectations on the programme.

Walsh told show host Holly Willoughby: "Don't give her a hard time. She worked so hard with Ruth."

Cowell added: "I've got to say, I think Dannii did a great job with Ruth and vice versa. I wasn't expecting her to stay this long at the beginning. But she proved that she's a really, really great singer [and] a great performer. We're going to miss her, really."

Minogue lost Daniel Evans in week six of the competition and saw Rachel Hylton being sent home last weekend.
