Dannii Minogue and her son are quarantining in their home rather than a hotel because of medical considerations, according to reports.

Kylie Minogue's sister, 48, and her 10-year-old son Ethan are believed to have avoided the mandatory 14-day hotel stay implemented by the Queensland government on account of a note from a doctor.

She shares Ethan with ex Kris Smith.

Having gone into effect in March, travellers returning to Australia have had to hunker down in hotels for a fortnight to halt the spread of Covid-19.

7News reports that Dannii and Ethan had travelled back from the United States over the weekend, and have returned to a private Gold Coast property.

While in the home, however, Dannii is believed to have agreed to stick to the same rules that would apply were she in a hotel.

No one may come and go from the property, and she had agreed to be tested multiple times for the deadly bug.

Her return to her home means she won't have to foot the $2,800 hotel bill.

Dannii is said to be complying with the rules as if she were staying in a hotel - which means she gets tested multiple times and no one is allowed to come and go to the property

There is no indication that Dannii has broken any coronavirus restrictions.

Mirror Online has contacted Dannii's reps and the Queensland government for comment.

When approached by 7News, the government told: "While we cannot comment on individuals, Queensland Health has strong arrangements in place whether people are quarantining inside or outside hotels."

Dannii said the showbiz life became too much for her

Dannii appeared on the UK version of The X Factor as a judge, but told last year that she'd left the showbiz life behind over the "anxiety, depression, stress" that she'd felt at the height of her career.

Chatting to RadioTimes, the star revealed: "It really got to a point where I was just happy to bow out, and not be part of entertainment anymore, because it was really crushing me and I felt it was just too much.

"I had to try and get back to focus on who I really am, so I'm glad that it evolved and that it turned around and I was able to come back and still do my job, because it's not in my personality to walk away and give up on something."

She added: "But I do think there's also a time where you put your hands up and say, 'this is too much' - anxiety, depression, stress - everyone has to put their hands up when it's too much for them."
