Dannii Minogue teams up with X Factor reject on new album

The X Factor judge is collaborating with her 2008 contestant Ruth Lorenzo on tracks for her upcoming album

Dannii Minogue has enlisted the help of her old X Factor pal Ruth Lorenzo, to collaborate on her new album.

Dannii mentored Ruth in the over 25s category on the TV talent show back in 2008, and the pair became firm friends during the show’s run.

But with Ruth only finishing in fifth place – while Alexandra Burke took the crown – the singer virtually disappeared into obscurity after the show ended.

Well, what a way to make a comeback…

The 27-year-old has written a series of tracks for her former mentor, including the song ‘Because You’re Beautiful,’ which Dannii reportedly absolutely ‘loved.’

‘She was rocking out with her big belly doing air guitar,’ Ruth told The Sun, of the recently heavily-pregnant Dannii.

‘She said she loved it. I said if she wanted to sing it, she could have it. So we got in the studio and it was so much fun.’

Dannii’s upcoming album will mark the first time that the new mum has hit the charts since her 2003 offering, Neon Nights.
