"Neon Nights (Deluxe Edition)" - released 15/10/07
"Girl (Deluxe Edition)" - released 15/10/07
"Club Disco" - released 18/10/07
"Unleashed" - released 29/10/07
"The Complete Collection DVD" - released 29/10/07
The DVD collection and the re-releases are pretty self-evident. The difference between "Unleashed" and "Club Disco" might need some further explanation. "Unleashed" will contain tracks from Dannii's scrapped 2004 album for London Records. I'm guessing it will have a pretty similar tracklist to The Platinum Collection - Dannii's scrapped compilation of B-sides and rarities. According to Dannii's omnipresent Webmaster, "Unleashed" contains 10 previously unreleased tracks. I have my fingers crossed that the deliciously titled "Karma Is A Bitch" will finally see the light of day. I'm also hoping to hear Dannii's collaboration with Pascal Gabriel, "No Romeo". Pascal is the man behind one of my favourite Kylie tracks - the magnificent "Tightrope"!
"Club Disco", on the other hand, will showcase songs from Dannii's 2006 album with AATW - the album that was eventually passed over in favour of "The Hits & Beyond". Expect to find the new tracks from that compilation (the "Beyond" songs) as well as the B-sides and 5 previously unreleased tracks. The most exciting prospect is the possibility of "Club Disco" containing Dannii's cover of "Xanadu" and her collaboration with Roger Sanchez, "Do You Believe Me Now?". That might be the reason for Dannii recent cameo appearance at one of Roger's gigs! These songs are expected to appear on the album but are, as yet, unconfirmed:
So Under Pressure
Do You Believe Me Now?
I Can't Sleep At Night
I've Been Waiting For You Extended Mix
Feel Like I Do
He's The Greatest Dancer
Sadly, "Club Disco" will be a download only release. Make sure to keep an eye on iTunes and 7Digital closer to the release date of 18 October. Finally, a big thank you to Magical Froggy for his amazing "Club Disco" cover. Peace out, bitches!

plus two short documentaries - one on the making of Neon Nights and another following Dannii over the last 2 years! Check out the tracklist and order your copy here!
FLIRTY judge Dannii Minogue is sending boy contestants wild – and making the girls mad.
Rumours are rife in boot camp that she is enjoying a steamy relationship with heart-throb Andy Williams, 22. And she even told 15-year-old schoolboy Michael Hough that he was “hot” and that she had written about him in her diary.
The show’s girl rivals are beginning to spit with rage. Susan Saunders, 23, of band Blush, hissed: “She was really frosty with us. “In fact, she was bitchy with a lot of the girls and much preferred the boys.”
A source close to the ITV1 contest admitted: “Dannii made it very clear that she fancied a lot of the lads and they were left in no doubt about her feelings. There was a rumour that she and Andy from South Wales were getting it on. Andy was a real ladies’ man and all the girls fancied him – including Dannii. He got very shy when anyone asked him what was going on between him and her. Lots of people at boot camp were convinced there was something going on between the two of them.”
At Andy’s first audition Dannii, 36, described him as “hot stuff” and added: “I really dig your style. The girls are going to love you.”
In contrast, she slagged off girlband Blush, saying they sounded like “four frogs in a blender”.
Dishy Dannii also flirted with young Michael, from Essex, after he sang Amy Winehouse’s Rehab. The besotted youngster, who is now 16, said meeting her was his best experience of The X Factor by far.
“She is stunning,” he drooled. “And she absolutely loved me. As soon as I walked in, she said she loved my image and that I was hot. Then she said that my voice was ‘wicked’ and just what she was looking for. It was amazing to have Dannii Minogue say something like that. For days afterwards I still couldn’t get it out of my head what she had said.”
Things got better and better for smitten Michael when he was still at boot camp.
Although he didn’t make it through to the live stages of the competition, foxy Dannii did her best to comfort him and made a point of telling him she was very sorry he didn’t make it.
“I saw her afterwards and she told me she was absolutely gutted,” said Michael.
“I was standing with a big group of lads but she singled me out specially. She said, ‘I really thought you were going far’ before giving me a big hug. She also said she’d written three songs in her diary for me to sing at the later stages if I had got through.”
The lad revealed he had posed for pictures with his dream girl. He now has a treasured photograph on the wall of the sitting room at home. He added: “Knowing that Dannii had written my name in her diary meant I definitely went home with a smile on my face.”
Check out this clip of Dannii sitting alone in the corner at a Roger Sanchez gig in Ibiza! Our Dannii is no wallflower - where are all the eligible ladies trying to pick her up? I'm outraged! Dannii also looks like she might have indulged in a couple of cocktails. She can barely keep her pretty head up! Speaking of Roger Sanchez, I have everything crossed that the tracks he produced for Dannii finally appear on the upcoming "Unleashed: Hits & Rarities" CD - which is now slated for the 5th of November.

Dannii is the ultimate gay icon. End of. No discussion necessary. Be stunned and amazed by Dannii's exquisite voice and breathtaking dance moves. I was lucky enough to see this performance live and Dannii's rendition of "All I Wanna Do" is still as riveting as it was 10 years ago. The part where Dannii is groped on stage by an army of luscious lesbians is even more erotic in a post-Lezzigate world. Enjoy!
I love this parody of "This Is It" from The Late Show in 1993. It just proves what an enormous and well loved celebrity Dannii really is! I'm pretty sure that Dannii is played (superbly) by Frontline's Jane Kennedy. My favourite line is "Look at my hair. With this disgusting streak no wonder people stare"!

X Factor's Dannii Minogue has described the pushy mothers who force children into stardom as, as "Mumzillas", following their kids around with boxes of make-up and sequins. Right.
So what's the name for sisters who, despite no discernible talent for singing or acting, lurk in the shadow of their older sibling and are so desperate for the spotlight to fall on them they have their bodies rebuilt by medical science with monstrous results?

Simon Cowell has chimed in to quash the reports (of a feud), telling The Mirror: "I have seen nothing which makes me think they don't get on. We're one big, happy family."
"I've been with them throughout the auditions and I just don't see it. There were a few days at the start when things were awkward but that was simply because they didn't know each other,"
He added: "On a couple of occasions things got over-emotional. But there certainly haven't been any tearful walkouts. Dannii is very much part of the team now - she's been accepted."
His assurances aren't exactly in step with comments he made earlier this month when he revealed the two women compete for his attention. He said: "When I sit next to one, the other sulks. I have to try to give each one equal attention.
"You know girls can be very catty and it's been very interesting watching how another woman has affected the dynamic of the group."
Bigmouth Sharon—who started her showbiz career as assistant to her rock mogul dad Don Arden —returned to ITV with Simon, Louis Walsh and new judge Dannii Minogue for the fourth series of X Factor last month. But quietly spoken David believes this will be Sharon's last, as Dannii steals her limelight.
"Sharon will hate Dannii," he said. "She's always had a problem with women who are better-looking than her. Already Dannii's stolen Sharon's thunder and the talking points have centred around the new girl and the return of Louis. Sharon is nowhere to be seen. Even on the official PR photos she's been shoved to the back. That will annoy her extremely.
"Based on past history and 50 years of living with Sharon I know she'll want Dannii out. She's had every good-looking woman working around her sacked within, max, three months. Even when Sharon was working as a telephonist at her father's Jet Records company in the 70s she made sure any hot young thing was gone within days.
"Even at school she always hung around with plainer girls to make herself look better. She always wants to be Queen Bee and won't let anything stand in her way. But now Dannii's been such a hit it makes it easier for Sharon to be dropped. Simon must be aware of her feelings and what happened with Ben last time around. Sharon's days are numbered. And it's all down to her own appalling behaviour."
