Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to bring back Dannii Minogue as an X Factor judge.
The Australian singer is allegedly in negotiations to replace Kelly Rowland on the panel.
Bringing back Dannii would be a surprise move following the revelations that the two are rumoured to have had a relationship back in 2007.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: "Simon thinks she's great. They are still friends. If it works out, then it will be fantastic for X Factor.
"No formal offer has yet gone out but this is likely to happen in the next few days."
An X Factor source is quoted saying: "Dannii is the top of ITV's wish-list for new judges on the show and they are keen to begin official talks.
"She is extremely popular among X Factor fans and would still be a big draw."
Dannii was a judge on four series of the show but quit last year due to scheduling problems with filming for Australia's Got Talent.
