Dannii Minogue is glad to be back on solid ground after a nightmare flight almost ended in a crash. The X Factor judge and younger sister to Kylie Minogue was bound for Cairns to film an episode of the Australian version of the hit reality television show when the plane she was on almost hit the runway on landing.

"We had the most terrible landing. We were coming down to land and suddenly shot straight back up again,” Dannii’s friend tells.

And what’s worse was Dannii had two-month-old baby Ethan onboard the flight with her. "It was all very scary,” continued Dannii’s friend. “There was too much cloud and the pilot could not see the runway."

But thankfully the pilot of the plane was able to bring the craft down safely and no one was hurt.
