Louis Walsh has landed himself a £1.6 million X Factor deal while Dannii Minogue has seen her fee reduced.
The Australian beauty is believed to be taking a £100,000 pay cut, as her pregnancy means she will not be present for the live shows.
Meanwhile, Westlife mentor Louis has signed a new contract worth more than twice as much as his £700,000 deal last series.
"Simon was always keen to have Louis back," a source tells The Sun.
"He plans to make the show bigger and better than ever before, and he likes to reward his fellow judges for remaining loyal to him."
