Dannii Minogue splits from lover in time for Australia’s Got Talent

IT was back in May 2011 we first heard that X Factor judge, formerly Kylie’s Sister Dannii Minogue, had split from Kris Smith.

“Heartbroken” Dannii tweeted:

“Never chase love. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it’s not worth having. Forgiving someone does not mean forgetting what they did. It simply means letting go of the hurt.”

Now almost a year later, the Sun leads witht ehy news of “DANNII”S LOVE SPLIT AGONY”.

N-Dubz Tulisa To Take Dannii Minogue’s Place On X Factor

BRITAIN at large is transformed when The X Factor rolls into town. Basically, the whole country is carved up into two camps – those that hate the show and those that don’t watch it.

It’s all going to become more rampant too, as the show is being launched in the USofA who won’t know what’s bloody hit them once it all kicks off. American Idol is going to look like a gentle stroll through a tumbleweed factory by the first week of Simon Cowell’s dastardly, engrossing brainchild hitting the small screens.

Kelly Osbourne Starts Twitter War With ‘Devil’ Dannii Minogue

KELLY Osbourne is doing her bit to promote Dannii Minogue’s new book by calling Kylie’s sister and the X Factor judge a “devil”; or De-viil, as will be rebranded.

Very soon we can expect Ozzy Osbourne, that self-styled Prince of Darkness and star of reality telly, to start wearing a likeness of Devil Danii about his throat.

Kelly has taken to Twitter to big up Dannii’s book by saying, and this without one shred of irony or sideways eyes at her own mum who invited cameras into the family home to watch her spoilt rehab-salved children:

“The best thing to happen to Dannii’s career was that my mother hated her she needs to shut her mouth and concentrate on motherhood!”

This is pixie-voiced Sharon Osbourne who responds to bad criticism by sending poo in envelopes to they who dare not to like her or her pisspoor telly shows:

I must have a thing, not about shitting, but about sending it to people, and I’ve done it for an awfully long time.”

In Pictures: Harrods Under Al Fayed – Pussy Cat Dolls, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Bra And Stuffed Bears

HARROD’S has been sold by Mohamed al Fayed for £1.5bn to a buyer understood to be the Qatari royal family. Will the shrine to Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed remain in the store? Will Al Fayed now also sell Fulham FC? Will he auction off his collection of vomit ‘n’ cuff shirts? Will Prince Philip use the hallowed urinals (£1 a go) once again? Fayed’s reign at Harrods seemed to be a chance for him to meet famous women and hand them something furry to stroke. On our photo collection, Fayed seemed to have more than passing liking for Jennifer Love Hewitt (11-13), the Pussy Cat Dolls, who all got pet a pussy to pet, Lily Allen (5) and all the girls he’s met before…

You find joy in the simplest pleasures.

In Pictures: Dannii Minogue’s Project D Fashion Range

DANNII Minogue, the X Factor judge, unveiled her new fashion line Selfridges store in central London. It’s a clothing range called Project D. It was hard to see past Dani’s bulging tummy. We guessed that was the first clothing range for women who want to look pregnant. Dannii has a double “n”, double “i” and a pair of double “ds”. This new single D is a step in the right direction. Also there was DDaannii’ss designer Tabitha Somerset-Webb.

Katie Price Out Fronted By Debbie Rush At National Television Awards: In Pictures

AFTER Christine Hendricks saw the Golden Globes renamed in her honour – The Christine Hendricks Golden Globes – we looked across the red rope for signs of who would be our stand-out star at the Britain’s National Television Awards 2010. In they trotted: Katie Price, Amanda Donohoe, Dannii Minogue, Heather Mills, Kara Tointon, Barbara Windsor, Shobna Gulati Helen Flanagan, Loose Women, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell looking like an Easter Island statue. But nothing doing. So it’s Katie Price again – unless it’s Debbie Rush!: (Show pics)

Katie Price Beats Britney Spears And Suri Cruise To Media Award

Joan Collins and the Daily Mail find a way to namecheck Peter Andre, Katie Price, Big Brother, Jade Goody, Peter Andre, Kerry Katona, Dannii Minogue, the X Factor, Britney Spears, Suri Cruise and just about any other celebrity you want to read about…

A TRULY brilliant story on the Mail’s front page, as it uses a picture of Katie Price to highlight its, er, “NONENTITIES” awards.

Yep. Katie Price is such a nonentity she is now reduced to appearing on the Mail’s front page. Even the Daily Star doesn’t bother with her, leading instead with Umar Abdulmutallab and the war on terror.

X Factor: Bon Jovi Sign Jamie Archer, Alexandra Burke Urinates And Jedward Fix

x-factor7IT’S Saturday and that means it’s X Factor Day in the tabloids. Well, it’s always X Factor Day in the tabloids but today they get to spice our quotidian offerings with the thought that it might be the last time we see John And Edward Grimes perform like fame’s singing testicles wired up to the car battery.

That news:

Sun (front page): “It’s the X Factor Bust Up”

X FACTOR star Jamie Archer is threatening to QUIT after his relationship with mentor Simon Cowell hit a new low.

Shaddap You Face: John & Edward Fight To Bring Back The Novelty Christmas Song

jedwardX FACTOR Watch: Jedward walks, Max Clifford stalks, Pete Warterman puts on rose-tinted specs for Pop Idol, Cheryl Cole’s teeth are wanted, Dannii Minogue is a sight screen and Anorak’s campaign to bring back the novelty record…

Jedward, the two–headed beast, move onto another week’s awfulness. They need to make it truly terrible to keep their bandwagon going. It’s not easy to be hated. Look at Noel Edmonds.

They say that when Jedward sings the world heats up and a polar bar suffocates. They say the CIA are using recordings of Jedward to torture prisoners’ gonads. They say Jedward are husband and wife, hailing from a small factory in China.

They say they must win to restore the novelty record to its rightful place as the Christmas no.1. Where is the new Renee and Renato? Mr Blobby? Bob The Builder?

And after Christmas, where is the new Father Abraham’s crooning for his Smurfs, T.U.R.T.L.E. Power, The Purple People Eater and anything by STEPS? Jedward… We need you to bring back the novelty Christmas record.

To today’s X Factor news:

Herald (Ireland): “No stopping Jedward now as celeb agent Max Clifford is set to snap up the twins”

X Factor twins John and Edward Grimes are being lined up by celebrity agent Max Clifford as their popularity soars.

Look out for Jedward pulling on matching Chelsea kits, shagging a bit-part actress and becoming the new Kerry Katonas.

X Factor: Teacher Shows Danyl Johnson And Olly Murs How To Quit

idols14X FActor wananber Danyl Johnson is a teacher. Toby Moulton on Australian Idol shows him, John & Edward, Lloyd Daniels, Olly Murs and every other wannabe that singing might not be for them. A look at the X Factor show judges Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole suggests singing is not for them either – it’s just a gateway to the fame, riches and adulation.

Says Toby: “I now know you I am – I’m a teacher.”

It could be mawkish. The audience goes wild. But the man’s point is well made. You’ve got to want it to get on in Simon Cowell’s pop prep school. And wanting it can override any need for talent.

Toby Moulton did not want it enough. He knew his own mind. Simon Cowell knows his own mind. His acts seem to have left their minds at the door…

X Factor: Danyl Johnson Look-Alike Gallery

danyl-johnson-3-2408THE knives are out for Danyl Johnson, this year’s X Factor hate figure. How can there be a contestant who can move and sing better than show judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue?

Johnson has been called cocky and vain – character traits you’d suppose were prerequisite for making it in Simon Cowell’s pop factory.

But the biggest bugbear about Danyl Johnson is his looks. He has a face formed not by surgeons blade and chemist – see Cowell, Louis Walsh and Danni Minogue – but by committee.

Anorak got to thinking and we asked the typing pool who Danyl Johnson reminded them off. These are their answers – your suggestions, please…:

X Factor: Tabloids Bully Danyl Johnson Over Stacey Solomon’s Son

danyl-johnson-cryingONE day on from news that Simon Cowell is to investigate stories that X Factor’s ‘Bronze Age Will Young’ Danyl Johnson has been mean to Stacey Solomon, the Star screams:



“Stacey a sobbing wreck over Danyl’s jibes”

As we’ve said, Stacey should thank Danyl for connecting her with her tears. If she can mime and dry hump a microphone, Stacey may yet becomes a pop sensation in the mould of a Cheryl Cole or Dannii Minogue.

X Factor: Danyl Johnson Saved By Stacey Solomon

danyl-johnson-8AND it came to pass that the X Factor did some down to Miss Frank, a would-be drag act named after a boutique in the Poole Arndale Centre, and Danyl Johnson, the Bronze Age Will Young.

Both acts are vastly superior to non-singing, non-dancing Lloyd Daniels and Return To Oz extras John & Edward.

Was Danyl undone by the story of his making Stacey Solomon cry? We waited. The judges would decide. Who stays?

X Factor: Dermot O’Leary Wants Joe McElderry Locked Up

dermot-john-and-edwardREAD X Factor presenter Dermot O’Leary’s news column in the News of The World:

It’s Dermot ‘literally’ O’Leary right here on this page, literally. Dermot O’Leary, people. Coming right up. Literally. Any moment now…

Ad break.

Dermot O’Leary will be right here on the Anorak pages, literally, here…

Ad break.

Well, they did it. They defied the odds, they beat the boos and they rode roughshod over everyone’s expectations to make it through the first week unscathed.

They took the knocks, rode the wave, hit the highs, trawled the lows and literally scaled the scales. It’s John and Edward, Ireland’s late-developing answer to The Proclaimers, and the answer to the question ‘What’s more annoying than the Proclaimers’?

X Factor: Hypocrites Cheryl Cole And Dannii Minogue Say Knickers To Kandy Rain

xxx-factor1X Factor: Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue criticise Kandy Rain’s sluttiness. Danyl Johnson is out.

KANDY Rain – the ex-strippers who sought to move away from their adult entertainment past by strapping themselves into bodices, gyrating behind pole-like microphones and wearing pussycat ears, having already named their group in the manner of an American porn star – are no longer competing on the X Factor.

Kandy Rain have the X-ex-Factor, soon, perhaps, to have the XX Factor and, of the money is good enough, the XXX Factor.

Dannii Minogue says that the look distracts from their voices. This is Danni Minogue, she before attempting to regain control of her eyebrows, slapped on some pneumatic breasts, shiny knickers and bras and dry-humped the stage.

The X Factor 12: The Infectious Olly Murs, Bronze Age Danyl Johnson And Acid Kandy Rain

hateWE’RE down to the last dozen in the X Factor. Anorak gives you pen portraits of the runners and riders:

OVER 25s

Olly Murs – Say his name quickly and it sounds like a child hood infection. “Oh, yes,” says the mum at the school gates. “He’s got Olly Murs, all over his back and groin.” One day everyone will want Olly Murs. But with Robbie Williams still around that day is not any time soon.

Danyl Johnson – That Danyl spells his name with a ‘y’ is the first and second most interesting thing about him. The third most remarkable thing is that when he sings he actually makes himself wince. He also looks like a Bronze Age version of Will Young trying to light a fire with his stare.

Jamie Archer – Jamie has huge hair. Vote now and often to keep Jamie on the stage so that no-one ever has to sit behind him at a concert, film or on a bus.


Joe McElderry – The north east’s answer Marti Pellow – if the question was, “What’s wetter than Marti Pellow?”

Lloyd Daniels – Blessed with an expression that says he left his geography homework on the bus and doesn’t care who knows it. Lloyd Daniels sounds a bit like Danielle Lloyd, the nation’s sweetheart. Look out for Lloyd taking his top off and setting off on a jinking run through the Spurs ladies football team.

Rikki Loney – He’s the cat in the hat. Rikki wears a hat because a) he’s going bald; b) it was his dying mum’s last wish; c) anything that distract you from his voice is worth a try; d) it’s what Michael Jackson would have wanted.


Stacey Solomon – The winner.

Rachel Adedegi – Devoid of the girly prettiness that the likes of her mentor Dannii Minogue pays big bucks for, Rachel needs to actually rely on her singing to win the X Factor. As such, she is shafted – but looks more than capable of wiping the smirk from any winner’s face – literally (right, Dermot?).

Lucie Jones – Lucie is Welsh. The Welsh, as we are often told are to singing what the Canadians are to seal clubbing. Lucie’s Welshness should secure her lots of votes from her army of Welsh fans who will drape themselves in dragon-themed flags to say how proud they are of Lucie, how all of Wales is praying for her and how Wales – did we mention wales? – is all about the singing, as anyone who has heard Cardiff fans giving full throat to “He’s sad, he’s fat, He is a f*cking twat, Leighton James, Leighton James…” will tunefully attest.


Kandy Rain – They used to be strippers. One of them used to do porn. If you thought stripping porn stars couldn’t sing you have not heard Kandy Rain. One listen and you’ll know…

Miss Frank – The name suggests a drag act. The music suggests being dragged out to a drunken night in a local karaoke bar.

John & Edward – When they Come to make Midwich Cuckoos The Musical, John and Edward will be shoo-ins for at least two of the lead roles. Hateful. Terrible. Depressing. Pretty much why the show is a hit.

The X Factor – making tomorrow’s has-beens…

Alesha Dixon Is Strictly’s Ellen Degeneres

65267901ALESHA Dixon, is not a real judge, just as Strictly Come Dancing is not a real dance contest. Dixon is the show’s totty, there to give better arms, breasts and neck than Arlene Phillips, the judge who dispensed wisdom with a wattle.

Dixon was meant to be the show’s answer to the X Factor’s weepy Cheryl Cole, who was added to that show’s magistrate’s panel not in place of the older Dannii Minogue but in addition, offering viewers an advertorial for before and after plastic surgery.

But things are not working out for Dixon, who has missed becoming the show’s Cheryl to be this season’s John Sergeant, or the X Factor’s Chico of any number of hampless but amusing acts that make these show’s bearable.

Madeleine McCann: Victoria Beckham Lookalike Found

mccann-lookalike-1MADELEINE McCann Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Madeleine McCann in the news – Posh lookalike found, live from Barcelona and the Swedish ghost ship…

Daily Express (back on the front page): “MADDIE: Mystery of yacht that just vanished”


No, it’s not the yacht that just vanished form the new, the Arab yacht that in June 2007 caused the Express to yell “Find the Arab’s yacht.” This is another disappearing yacht entirely:

A YACHT which left the Algarve just hours after Madeleine McCann disappeared has vanished without trace, the Daily Express can reveal. The luxury Swedish cruiser sailed out of the Portuguese harbour at Portimao on May 4, 2007, the morning after four-year-old Madeleine disappeared. It has not been seen since.

Last night there was growing speculation that Madeleine might have been whisked out of Portugal on the mystery boat.

Speculation like:

It is possible Madeleine could have been abducted on the orders of a childless couple, desperate to have a family, and taken to Barcelona to meet her new “parents”…

And the mystery yacht?

In Sweden all vessels measuring over 12 metres (40ft) long must be registered with the Swedish Maritime Administration. But inquires with their head office in Stockholm yesterday found no record of the yacht.

You don’t suppose… No, it’s too far-fetched. Well, you don’t suppose the mystery yacht was smaller than 12 metres long?

Daily Star: “Maddie: Was she on boat?”

The Swedish boat or the Arab boat? The jet ski?


DETECTIVES hunting for Madeleine McCann were last night trying to trace a multi-million-pound power boat. The high-speed craft flying the Australian flag was moored yards from the spot where a nervous Posh Spice lookalike asked a Brit: “Are you here to deliver my daughter?’’
