A source told the Mirror: 'Dannii has said yes and they're happy that she will do it, but she needs confirmed shooting schedules and dates for the entire series before she packs her bags and lets other opportunities go.

'She doesn't want what happened last time to happen again. Being a mum she has to plan ahead. It's as simple as that - Ethan is the priority.'
