Dannii Minogue admits she’ll be ”devastated” if Cheryl Cole wins ‘The X Factor’ for a third year in a row.

She even gets a bit competitive when saying that, she’ll work with Simon and Louis to make sure that Cheryl won’t win! Ooer!

The Girls Aloud singer has been victorious in the two series since she joined the show’s judging panel – mentoring Alexandra Burke in 2008 and last year’s winner Joe McElderry – and now Dannii says she and fellow judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh will have to work together in order to break her perfect record.

She said: “It would completely devastating if anyone won it three years in a row, wouldn’t it? I think we’ve all got to have our own game-plan for that happening. If Cheryl gets close to it by the end of the year, we’re going to have to band together for sure.”

Despite making a pact with Simon and Louis, Dannii – who missed the audition rounds of this year’s show after giving birth to son Ethan in July – insists all the judges will be competitive against each other because they all want one of their acts to win.

She said: “It’s such a big part of the show whether you like it or not. We are fiercely competitive and I’m sure sparks will be flying again this year, but I try to focus on the contestants.”
