Kylie And Jason Reunited At Last On Stage

Former soap couple Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovon have been reunited on stage for the first time in 23 years.

The Australian pair duetted on their 1988 smash hit Especially For You to a rapturous reception from the audience at London's O2 arena.

Donovan swept the diminutive pop star - dressed in a short black dress trimmed with green leather - off her feet in a heartfelt embrace.

Globally loved for their roles as Scott and Charlene in Neighbours, the single sold more than a million copies in the UK alone.

Before singing the closing notes, Minogue asked the audience: "How long have you waited for this for?"

The stars were joined by 80s and 90s pop stars Rick Astley, Bananarama and Steps among others for the Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker concert.

Donovan also serenaded the crowd with hits including Nothing Can Divide Us and When You Come Back To Me.

All the acts took to the stage to close the show with Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody.

Part of the proceeds from ticket sales for the event will be donated to Cancer Research UK.

The show had been due to take place in Hyde Park in the summer, but was axed because of bad weather.
