Career: Dannii found fame in the 1980s thanks to her role in the Australian talent show Young Talent Time and the soap opera Home and Away. She started her pop career in the 1990s and although she had hits with Love and Kisses and This Is It, she didn’t enjoy the same success as her older sister, Kylie. Her 2001 album Neon Nights was the most successful of her career, but in 2007 she reinvented herself as a television personality. Dannii is currently a judge on Australia’s Got Talent and The X Factor in the UK, where she has been the winning judge in 2007 and 2010.
Relationships: In January 1994, Dannii married Australian actor Julian McMahon, who she met in 1991 when working on Home and Away. He is now best known for his role on US TV drama Nip/Tuck. They divorced in 1995 after less than two years of marriage. In October 1999 she got engaged to Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve, but they split up in 2001. In early 2002 she started dating music producer and former Bros bass player, Craig Logan, but their relationship ended later the same year. She has been dating professional rugby league player Kris Smith since August 2008, when they met in Ibiza. Their son, Ethan Edward Smith, was born on 5th July 2010.
FYI: In 2010, Dannii launched her own fashion line called Project D.
