Dannii still has X factor with TV award

DANNII Minogue says she is "over the moon" after being crowned TV Personality of the Year - despite her exit from The X Factor.

The Australian judge, 39, who had to quit the ITV1 show after the auditions schedule clashed with her work on Australia's Got Talent, won the accolade at last night's Glamour Women of the Year event.

The mother-of-one, who recently played down rumours of a split with boyfriend Kris Smith, accepted the honour in a video acceptance speech.

Later she wrote on Twitter: "Over the moon to receive TV Personality award for third time from readers of @GlamourMagUK. Icing on the cake for doing something I LOVE! Dx."

Two minutes later she added that her last year on The X Factor had been "magical" with one of her acts, Matt Cardle, winning the 2010 show.

The bash, hosted by actor James Corden, also saw Sarah Burton, who created the ivory wedding gown worn by the Duchess of Cambridge at April's royal wedding, win Designer Of The Year.

Tipperary girl Una Healy's band The Saturdays also celebrated on the night after being crowned Band Of The Year.

Big Brother-turned-Million Pound Drop host Davina McCall won Presenter of the Year, with the award presented to her by Dermot O'Leary.
