According to insiders, Dannii Minogue was still to have a firm offer put to her but it was “highly likely” they would reach an agreement.
A show source said: “Both Syco (Cowell’s company) and ITV are massive Lily Allen fans and the amount of money they’re offering her makes it clear they think she will be the biggest draw on the show
“She’s known to have strong opinions and has huge credibility. There was a fear her hectic schedule may interfere with filming, so they’ve offered to divide the auditions between the judges.”
