Australia’s The X Factor has been jeopardised by an influenza outbreak on set which has affected both the celebrity judges and the contestants.
Cases of flu have broken out during filming of the TV talent show in Melbourne, and star judge Dannii Minogue was among the victims.
The singer was so ill, she had to skip several days filming last week, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph, while her co-star Redfoo has also fallen sick.
The illness is also affecting the contestants, with a number of acts including boy band Younger Than Yesterday battling poor health while performing on the show.
