Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole have reportedly become close on the set of this year’s X Factor.
According to Metro, the judges spent little time together in the past two years, but have recently become friends.
A source told the newspaper: “It’s the closest Dannii and Cheryl have every been.
“In the past they’ve had little contact off camera. This year they have each other’s number and are actually texting each other.”
Last month, it was suggested that show boss Simon Cowell had urged Cole and Minogue to “sort out their differences” before both returned to the reality talent contest for the live rounds.
It was previously claimed that the pair in fact became friends towards the end of the 2008 series of The X Factor.
