Dannii followed in sister Kylie Minogue's footsteps and began her career as a pop singer in the early 1990s, achieving early success with hits such as Love and Kisses, This is It, Jump to the Beat and Baby Love.

After a brief hiatus, Dannii returned to the music scene in the early 2000's with the release of her biggest worldwide hit to date, Who Do You Love Now?, while her subsequent album, Neon Nights, became the most successful of her career.

Multi-talented Dannii has also enjoyed success on the stage, with roles including Lady Macbeth and Rizzo in Grease. Further small-screen credits have included presenting The Big Breakfast and acting as a judge on Australia's Got Talent.

Dannii Minogue is celebrating her 43rd birthday

Dannii significantly raised her UK profile by joining the judging panel on The X Factor in 2007, appearing alongside Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh.

In January 1994, Dannii married actor Julian McMahon, son of former Australian Prime Minister William McMahon, who she met on set while filming Home and Away - but the pair divorced the following year.

Since then the star has enjoyed high-profile relationships with Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve and former Bros bassist Craig Logan.

The former X Factor judge began dating English model Kris Smith in 2008, and gave birth to son Ethan Edward Smith in Australia on 5 July 2010. The couple announced their split in 2012 and Dannii is now reportedly dating multi-platinum songwriter and producer Adrian Newman.
