London: Singer Dannii Minogue is reportedly in talks to make a dramatic return to `The X Factor` UK. Minogue, 40, who recently broke up with her boyfriend of four years Kris Smith, is apparently keen to return to the show, reported a website.
The move comes after insiders confirmed that former Destiny`s Child singer Kelly Rowland will not be back for the new series later this year. Negotiations with producers started a month ago, after her relationship with Smith broke down.
"Simon has always been a fan of Dannii`s, and she is keen for a return to Britain after the end of her relationship with Kris," a source said.
"Rejoining the X Factor would be ideal. Producers are really keen to make it happen, and Dannii`s team feel it would be the perfect move," the source added.
Minogue`s recently disclosed affair with music mogul Simon Cowell, revealed in an unauthorised biography earlier this month, is said to be irrelevant to the decision.
She was a judge on `The X Factor` for four series before moving to Australia full-time in 2010 after her last season in the UK finished.
