Reality TV star Kerry Katona has commented on X Factor judge Dannii Minogue's use of cosmetic surgery in OK! Magazine.

The 27-year-old ex-Atomic Kitten singer said that Dannii, who has been candid about her use of Botox in the past, does not show her emotions. She added: "Dannii really doesn't cut it next to Cheryl Cole, who's so full of personality."

Last week, 36-year-old Dannii said that she might consider posing for Playboy again, prompting a review of the cosmetic surgery procedures she has undergone in her life. As well as Botox injections, she is known to have had a breast augmentation, and may also have undergone rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and dermal fillers to plump up her lips.

Cosmetic surgery appears to be a running theme in each series of the X Factor. Former judge Sharon Osbourne has often spoken about the numerous procedures she has undergone, while Simon Cowell, creator of the X Factor, said in August that he believed it should be 'compulsory' for all women over 40 to have plastic surgery.

Katona's love for cosmetic surgery, on the other hand, was also brought to light this month when the celebrity went under the knife as part of a reality TV show for MTV.

The concept of the programme involved filming Katona's recent 15,000 bout of surgeries, which included a breast reduction and liposuction.

Emerging from her cosmetic operations, she told the Daily Mirror: "I feel great. I'm delighted with the way I look and the way it feels. The results are amazing."
