But singer Dannii Minogue still loves being a judge on The X Factor

Dannii Minogue admits Simon Cowell is hard to please on The X Factor.

The Aussie singer has been a judge on the ITV show since 2007 and says the music mogul expects the whole team to give their all.

‘He’s a tough boss to work for but in a good way,’ says Dannii, 39. 

‘I enjoy the fact that it’s pressurised. I’ve learned so much from him.’

Dannii – who is mentoring Matt Cardle, Aiden Grimshaw and Paije Richardson – hopes Simon, 51, will ask her to return for The X Factor 2011.

‘We never know until the end of the year!’ she tells Metro. ‘I think that’s good. It definitely keeps us on our toes…

‘I would love to do this next year. I have always said that it’s just a big part of my world.’
