Dannii Minogue hit the headlines earlier this year when it was alleged that she'd been romantically involved with X Factor boss Simon Cowell.

Dannii Minogue will not read Simon Cowell's book

In Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell was written by former BBC journalist Tom Bower and claims that the 52-year-old X Factor boss felt "genuine love" for Dannii before she started dating Kris Smith.

Simon allegedly described the relationship - which kicked off when Dannii, now 40, joined The X Factor judging panel in 2007 - as “a few bonks”.

But it all apparently “petered out” while Simon was in America.

Simon's quoted as saying: "I had a crush on her. It was Dannii's hair, the sexy clothes and the tits. I was like a schoolboy.

"She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine."

Despite the complimentary nature of Simon's book, Dannii, 40, has steered clear of the bestseller and has no intention of picking it up.

She told Glamour magazine: "I haven't read the book, but I've been told about the excerpts that relate to me, and the speculation about my private life.

"From what's been reported they put hundreds of hours into making this book, and Tom is a respected journalist.

"They looked very pleased with it all at their launch. I'm sure it makes for a great read and I wish them all the best."

She also revealed that she won't be returning to work with Simon on The UK X Factor and is sticking with Australia's Got Talent for the moment.

She told the magazine: "I was offered the chance to return, but I decided it wasn't the right thing for me, as yet again it didn't fit in with the commitments I'd already made to Australia's Got Talent.

"I am fiercely passionate about every show I commit to. I had four incredible years on The X Factor, but the show has moved on, and so have I.

"It will always have a really special place in my heart, and I’m still in touch with all of the contestants.

"I don't want people to think I just left the show and cut myself off from it, because I haven't."
