DANNII Minogue has put rumours of a feud with former X Factor star Cheryl Cole to rest – by saying she wants to collaborate with her on a new music venture.
The Aussie star gushed about how great she thought Cheryl’s debut solo album, 3 Words, is before saying she’d love to team up with her.
Dannii, 39, said: “I love Cheryl’s songs… absolutely love them. When her first solo album came out, I was listening to it and it took me a little while to get into.
“I was like… ‘I like this’… but now I love it. I just listen to it more and more and I absolutely love it. I’d love to do something with Cheryl.”
Dannii was forced to quit the X Factor after bosses set dates at the same time as her other show, Australia’s Got Talent.
Cheryl snubbed an offer to return to the British series after getting axed as a judge on the US version.
Dannii Minogue has tipped fellow X Factor judge Cheryl Cole for success at the Brits.
The Aussie, whose former protege Matt Cardle is up for best British single for his cover of When We Collide, said she wanted to see Plan B scoop the British male solo category.
Asked what she thought of the British female solo nominees, she told AOL Music: “Cheryl Cole has stormed the charts with her records and beguiled us all with her charm – I love that her lyrics are passionate and personal – they get me every time.”
Cheryl is up against Ellie Goulding, Laura Marling, Paloma Faith and Rumer for the British female solo gong.

CHERYL Cole reckons Dannii Minogue’s X Factor 2010 multi-tasking has been outstanding.
Speaking at the X Factor 2010 press conference this afternoon, Cheryl Cole said she admired Dannii Minogue hugely for combining being a new mum with being a judge.
She said: “I’ve got a huge amount of admiration this year for Dannii just having a baby.
“She’s literally breast feeding one second and on set the next and I think she looks absolutely incredible and she is a gorgeous woman and I admire her a lot.”
An embarrassed Dannii said she wished she had a button so she could disappear under the table but added that she’s had a great time being a judge and new mum to Ethan.
She said: “It has been a real laugh and yep the baby is backstage the whole time.”
Cheryl and Dannii – Tarot Cards [The Morgana Show]
Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue get spoofed in this new sketch show called ‘The Morgana Show’. Aired on Tues 30th November.
Watch the clip above on our video site.
They’re often thought of as rivals, particularly in the style stakes, but in a new interview Dannii Minogue has insisted she’s on good terms with fellow X Factor judge Chery Cole.
Speaking to Marie Claire magazine, Dannii said of Cheryl, “Cheryl’s always been there for me when I’ve had a hard time. Cheryl said to me the other day, ‘I don’t know how you’re doing all this. I know how crazy it is when all the contestants are running in and out and I have no make-up on. ‘And then I think of you trying to fit in feeding the baby as well.’’’
We’re actually inclined to think that Dannii and Cheryl really are pals, anyone else notice the Geordie judge giving Dannii a high-five at the end of Matt Cardle’s second performance on Saturday’s X Factor? You can just see it about three minutes into this video.
Miss Minogue has also spoken to Grazia about Cheryl, admitting she’d love to see the Chezza in one of her project D designed dress, “I’d definitely like to see her in a Project D dress – I have a hummingbird one I think would look gorgeous on her and I’d love to see Rebecca [Ferguson] in one of our looks.”
Anyone else love the idea of Dannii and Cheryl having a clothes-swapping girlie night in?
KIMBERLEY Walsh has waded into the latest X Factor 2010 controversy, telling Louis Walsh to keep his mouth shut about Dannii Minogue.
Louis Walsh has reportedly said he wants Sharon Osbourne to replace Dannii Minogue on The X Factor.
But Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh said Louis doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
In her latest OK! column she said: “Louis has said he wants Sharon to replace Dannii as she’s his friend and Dannii’s just an acquaintance.
“Out of respect to Dannii Louis probably shouldn’t be saying that but he doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut, that’s just what he’s like, he’s a nightmare!”
And she reckons the Aussie brunette is a great judge.
She added: “I thought Dannii was really good last year. I agreed with her on a lot of things but she’s just had a baby so might want to take a bit of time out.”
Kimberley reckons Simon Cowell might want to shake things up a bit though. She said: “Simon likes to keep things interesting and he keeps his cards close to his chest so I’d expect him to mix things up a bit – he’s unpredictable!”
Also in this week’s OK! column, Kimberley talks about how nice it was to meet up with Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts at Cheryl’s Promise ring collection launch.

The X Factor 2010 bootcamp is likely to be pushed back in order for Cheryl Cole to be able to attend, it has been reported. Currently planned to start on later this month on July 22, the bootcamp stages are also said have some big and exciting changes in store for this year’s show.
Cheryl Cole, who has spent a week in intensive care after contracting malaria, is not expected to have recovered by the current date, putting the plans in jeopardy. With new mum Dannii Minogue already ruled out, it could just be Simon and Louis choosing the acts who go through to judges houses this year.
A source said: “The judges have been really supportive of Cheryl, Simon in particular. He originally contacted her management team to inform them there was no hurry; her health was number one priority. She obviously missed a few of the regional auditions and bootcamp is due to start on July 22nd. Simon had a meeting with X Factor and ITV1 execs yesterday to instruct them to push back bootcamp until Cheryl is ready.”
It is also expected Cheryl will not be travelling abroad with her acts this year at the judges houses stage of the competition.
However big changes to the bootcamp format are also being planned, with the source adding: “There will be some big, exciting changes happening to this part of the new series anyway, so Cheryl’s role in proceedings will depend on how she is.
“Cheryl and her medical team are confident she will be back to full health, and behind the judging panel, come the TV studio audience finals in October.”
ITV has so far declined to comment on the reports.
