Dannii Minogue has revealed she is plotting a comeback to UK TV – she just needs to find the right project.

The former X Factor UK judge now works on the Australian version of the show, but admitted she would love to return to British screens for a programme equally as exciting as her old role.

She told Fault magazine: “I’ve been having meetings about TV that I might come back and do here. I definitely want to come back and do something – I’m just trying to find the right thing.

“Leaving X Factor here when it was just such a juggernaut… you kind of want [the new project] to be something just as special.”

Dannii, 42, also said she would like to have a more hands-on role in TV as a presenting exit strategy: “I guess I am looking for projects where I can be involved, not just as hired talent but more from the production side.

“I’m starting to look at that as something I can retire into – not just yet but, at some point, I’d love to being doing both, being on camera and also involved in the production.”
