Dannii Minogue keeps in "constant contact" with her old 'X Factor' acts.
The 41-year-old singer was a judge on the show from 2007 to 2010 and has managed to keep in touch with the likes of Stacey Solomon, who says the 'X Factor' Australia panellist is always on the phone to her to find out how she is getting on with her children, Zachary, five, and 14-month-old Leighton.
Stacey said: "She rang me not long ago to see how I was. She constantly keeps in contact. When I had Leighton she rang me. When I came out of the jungle she rang me. She's just a lovely lady.
"Dannii is amazing. I'm not the only one she rings. She phones all the other girls. She really cares."
Stacey finished third on the show's sixth series in 2009 under Dannii's mentorship, one place below runner-up Olly Murs, and she is delighted to see the 'Troublemaker' hitmaker has gone on to forge such a successful music career.
When asked if she still keeps in touch with any former 'X Factor' contestants, she added to new! magazine: "Olly Murs and Matt Cardle. We bump into each other through work and still get on, which is really nice.
"I'm really happy for him as he's a really nice boy. I love him to pieces."
