Simon Cowell is plotting to remove Dannnii Minogue as a judge on ‘The X Factor’ since the singer’s baby is due in July – right in the middle of the ITV show’s auditions. “Simon is acutely aware how this could play out in public. He doesn’t want to be seen as getting rid of Dannii because she’s pregnant, but realistically he knows it will be impossible for her to do the whole show from the auditions through to the live finals,” a source on the show tells The Mirror. “It’s a real dilemma but one option being considered is the possibility of giving Dannii a mentoring role on the show but not on the panel. Normally a decision like this would be taken much further down the line. But Dannii’s pregnancy means the question has to be addressed now.”
