X Factor pay cut for Dannii, as Louis lands £1.6m deal

Thursday April 15, 2010

Louis Walsh has landed himself a £1.6 million X Factor deal while Dannii Minogue has seen her fee reduced.

The Australian beauty is believed to be taking a £100,000 pay cut, as her pregnancy means she will not be present for the live shows.

Meanwhile, Westlife mentor Louis has signed a new contract worth more than twice as much as his £700,000 deal last series.

"Simon was always keen to have Louis back," a source tells The Sun.

"He plans to make the show bigger and better than ever before, and he likes to reward his fellow judges for remaining loyal to him."
