London: Dannii Minogue is apparently being removed from the next series of UK`s largest talent search show ‘The X Factor’.
The Aussie, 38, will return to the panel this year after taking time off during auditions to have son Ethan.
But sources claim she upset bosses by refusing to allow one of her stand-in judges to continue for the whole series.
"It`s no secret that her determination to do this year``s show annoyed people,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
"Some very senior figures hoped she would step aside so they could find a new judge and keep some degree of continuity between the auditions and the live shows," the source added.
Stand-in judge Nicole Scherzinger, 32, is in pole position to replace her.
