Dannii's excited at TV show with Brian

Dannii Minogue has spoken about her new slot alongside former Westlife member Brian McFadden.

The X Factor judge (below) has been lined up for the panel of the new series of Australia's Got Talent.

The sister of pint-sized popstar Kylie Minogue wrote on her Twitter page that she will return to Australia shortly to begin filming the reality show.

When asked by a fan what she thought of Brian McFadden and his squeeze Delta Goodrem, she said: "Brian is hilarious and Delta is divine."

"Can't wait for Australia's Got Talent to kick off again," she added.

Dannii (38), who just confirmed that she was expecting a baby, also sparked rumours that she was due to return to the recording studio after posting a photo of a microphone on her site.

And Brian (29), who is currently based in Sydney, said he was itching to get started on the show with former Australian Idol judge Kyle Sandilands and Dannii.

"I think the one thing the show won't have is, there won't be any bitchiness between the judges," McFadden said.

"We all like each other, but there will be no being soft on the contestants. Dannii might have to take a mothering approach to some of them."
