Dannii Minoque quits British 'The X Factor' due to scheduling conflict

UPI News Service, 05/15/2011 

Dannii Minoque says she is quitting her gig as a judge on the British television talent show "X Factor" due to scheduling conflicts.

Minoque said in a written statement that the schedule for the new season of "The X Factor" conflicts with her previous commitments to the judging panel on the similar series "Australia's Got Talent."

"During discussions for me to return (to 'The X Factor') it became clear that unfortunately, this year, the 'X Factor' audition dates in the UK clash with the live shows of 'Australia's Got Talent' during June and July," Minoque said. "For this reason I am unable to return."

The BBC said Sunday that Minoque's departure leaves an opening on the panel that is complicated by the move of Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell to the judges' table on the U.S. version of the show.

Among the possible replacements mentioned are rocker Ozzy Osbourne, Lily Allen and Louis Walsh, the BBC said.
