This week Fabulous Magazine cover star is the gorgeous Dannii Minogue and she reveals to Fabulous Magazine the real reasons behind her departure from X Factor, her health scare and how life, for her, begins at 40.
Dannii tells Fabulous Magazine that, despite the rumours, she wasn’t forced out of The X Factor. After being rushed to hospital in April last year with appendicitis Dannii found out that her thyroid wasn’t working properly. ‘The truth is’ she says ‘I have been very sick’… ‘I was travelling back and forth from Australia to the UK doing The X Factor, I was jet lagged, on the go non-stop’. ‘I was losing weight, permanently exhausted, I didn’t feel like myself.’
Giving up her role as a judge on X Factor was entirely her own decision. ‘I looked at the schedule. In the 10 weeks of filming it would have meant me doing around 10 trips back and forth from Australia. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to do it. I physically couldn’t.’ Upbeat as ever, Dannii reflects saying ‘I have to see what happened as a positive. My body forced me to rebalance my life. I needed to look after myself, my son and be at home with Kris. We needed to get through it together which is what we’ve done’
