Dannii Minogue has slammed reports that singer Rachel Hylton has dumped her as a mentor on X Factor. According to reports today, feisty Rachel ditched Dannii after a string of blazing rows about song choices and styling, which led to the 26-year-old singer being in the bottom two last Saturday.
Dannii has since spoken out to refute the claims: “Rachel and I have not fallen out and there has never been any discussions that she wishes to leave Team Minogue. I have, as always, spent lots of one on one time with Rachel this week and have even organised a personal shopping trip so she feels more confident about her look. Rachel is a raw talent. She may be the Robbie Williams of The X Factor, but I back her 100% and want her to be happy. As with all three of my amazing contestants, they are my main priority.”
Rachel has admitted she has chosen her own song and her own style for this week’s performance, but denied ‘sacking’ Dannii. “I don’t have anything against Dannii at all and she is still very much my mentor and I respect her opinions, all I want is a little more control over my performance and styling, which she is allowing me to have.”
Rachel ended up in the bottom two in disco week after performing Lost In Music; she also wasn’t happy with Dannii’s song choice in week one – Every Heartbeat by Robyn.
