Dannii Minogue's claims that she is just a punchbag on the X Factor have been rubbished by a British expert.

But boxing trainer, Jock Literal, was quick to rubbish Dannii's claims.
He said: "I've been in the boxing game since I was a kid and I've seen the insides of hundreds of gyms.
"I can definitely say that Dannii Minogue is no punchbag. They are usually a tatty brown colour, made of leather and hung from a ceiling.
"You can say what you like about Ms Minogue, but she doesn't fit that description. Certainly not in my book - in fact, I'd say she's quite bonny for a Digger, and I've been in this game a long time.
