Could Dannii Minogue be the X Factor’s saving grace? Rumours have it she might be making a comeback to the show she left two years ago.

According to reports the Australian star has admitted that she would return to the programme but only if the ratings got better.

Dannii, who was on the judging panel from 2007 to 2010, reportedly declined a million-pound deal to make her television comeback. However it seems that she’s not completely sure that it will stay that way.

When she was asked recently if she would ever consider returning, she said: “Do you know, if we could get those ratings back up! But all that pressure on my shoulders? I don’t know. I’m enjoying life now.”

This year’s judges have come in for a lot of criticism due to falling ratings.

The 41-year-old added that her two-year-old son, Ethan, changed her priorities: “I think a lot changes when you have a baby. You kind of love what you do but put in perspective that everything has it’s time and place”

She also told the HuffPost Celeb that X Factor, which hasn’t enjoyed the best of ratings this year, has to do something but that it doesn’t necessarily involve her: “But it has to evolve and change… I’m not part of that anymore.”
