Ms Minogue sent out a tweet of support to her former fellow judge, following Cheryl's shock exit from X Factor USA
No stranger to a spot of X Factor controversy herself – she quit the UK show amid rumours she felt ‘pushed out’ – Dannii reached out to her former colleague, re-tweeting the news then sending out a message backing Ms C.
‘Judging roles should come with a life jacket, drop down oxygen and a life raft!’ she posted on the social networking site.
She then added, ‘Sending #Channii love.’
Cheryl has reportedly already returned to the UK in secret, after learning she’d lost her X Factor spot days ago. With still no word from show officials – or Cheryl’s own team – on exactly why the singer was removed from the show, talk has turned to what she’ll will do next, with many tipping her to return to the UK version next month.
