Over the last series, Dannii was repeatedly rumoured to be facing the axe after clashes with her fellow judges and all her contestants were voted off the show in quick succession.

However, after talks with potential replacements - including former Spice Girls Victoria Beckham & Emma Bunton, Lily Allen and Charlotte Church - inside sources at the show claim Simon Cowell has decided to give Dannii another shot.

One source told the Mirror: “He had been toying with the idea of new blood for a while, but when he looked back it became increasingly obvious that Dannii was the talking point of the last series.

“Simon is a very canny businessman and this is a purely business decision.

“Although sacking Dannii and getting a new judge could win viewers for the first few shows, keeping Dannii pretty much guarantees fireworks throughout the entire series.”
