  • The war of words continues, as Dannii Minogue states: 'I'm not a liar'

    The war of words between Dannii Minogue and Sharon Osbourne shows no sign of waning, with the Aussie starlet hitting back at claims that she exaggerated their feud in her autobiography.

    Ms Minogue opened up on her rivalry with Sharon in her new book, revealing that Mrs O once launches a tirade of abuse at her just moments before going live on air for the X Factor. 

    When the revelations hit the press, Sharon’s daughter Kelly angrily claimed that Dannii’s account was ‘a book of lies’, taking to her Twitter account to rant and call Danni both the ‘devi’ and a ‘poor middle-aged victim.’

    Now Dannii has commented on the backlash, telling X Factor Magazine: ‘I just put what happened in the book. I don’t want to get into the back and forth of this. I wasn’t really upset or angry, I just laughed. I know what’s true.

    ‘She made strong accusations, but I’m not a liar – if she’s calling me a liar, she’s calling everyone who was there a liar. The producers and everyone. There were a lot of witnesses’ Minogue added.

    Dannii is set to make her highly-anticipated return to the X Factor this Saturday, where she’ll be mentoring the boys group this year.
