Kylie Minogue thinks Simon Cowell should put her sister Dannii back on the 'X Factor' judging panel alongside him and Cheryl Cole this year

Kylie Minogue has urged Simon Cowell to put Dannii Minogue back on 'The X Factor' judging panel.

The 45-year-old singer believes her sister - who was on the panel from 2007 to 2010 - has done really well since joining the Australian version of the show last year and will benefit the UK programme.

She said: "Dannii has done so well on 'X Factor Australia', she won it with her artist.

"She's got better and better and this year, in the words of ['X Factor' UK judge] Louis Walsh, she nailed it! So yes, I would like to see her back."

The 54-year-old music mogul is currently making the final decision on who he would like on the judging panel alongside him this year, with Cheryl Cole - who was on the show from 2008 to 2010 - believed to be one of his firm choices.

Kylie added to The Sun newspaper: "I think I'm with the whole country when I say the show has been missing her and Simon and Cheryl.

"It would be very exciting to see them back."

Having Dannii, 42, back on the panel could recreate the on-screen chemistry between her and Simon, who the music mogul admitted to having an affair with in his 2012 autobiography, and boost ratings.

However, Simon welcomed his first child son Eric into the world at the weekend with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

Meanwhile, Dannii - who has also appeared as a judge on 'Australia's Got Talent' - also has three-year-old son Ethan with her ex-boyfriend Kris Smith.
