Minogue is impatient shopper

LONDON: Dannii Minogue behaves like a man when it comes to shopping. The 'X Factor' judge finds visiting clothes shops boring and only does it to please her boyfriend, former rugby star Kris Smith.

She said: "There's a work me and a slob-around-at-home me. I love clothes but I don't love shopping. My boyfriend, Kris, adores it, so to earn brownie points I go with him, but after 15 minutes my foot starts tapping. I'm a total bloke. I tear things out of things out of magazines and ask my assistant to pick them up."

Although she doesn't enjoy shopping, Dannii is conscious about what she wears, especially when she appears on the TV talent show, alongside Cheryl Cole, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

She said: "Simon said recently that anybody in showbiz is a peacock - you want to look good, you want to feel good, you want to get out there and do a good job, and for me clothes are part of that.

"Simon got rid of his high-waisted trousers, but I do still wish he would put in a bit more effort. You should walk in there as a judge and present part of the dream. We've been working in the industry a long time and that's what contestants are aiming for."
