Kylie Minogue has enjoyed a night out on the town ahead of her move back to Australia.

The singer, 53, confirmed this week she will be basing herself down under after 30 years living in London.

On Thursday night, Minogue - who has a self-named range of wines - led the stars attending the Golden Vines Awards at Annabel’s in London.

The singer, known for tracks Can’t Get You Out of My Head and Spinning Around, wore a floor-length pink chiffon gown to the event - where she also took to the stage to perform a number of her hits.

The star, who had her big break on Australian soap opera Neighbours, was also joined by Natalie Imbruglia, 46, who also starred on the popular series.

On Wednesday, Minogue confirmed reports she will be moving back to Australia after moving to London in 1990.

A lot of her Melbourne-born family, including her pop star sister Dannii Minogue, live in Australia.

Reports suggest her British boyfriend - Paul Solomons - won’t make the move across the globe.

Very much in love, it is said the couple — who have been together for three and a half years — will continue their romance with a long distance relationship.

“Right now, Kylie has made the decision to move back to Australia and while Paul doesn’t want to relocate, they are still very much together and in love,” a source told The Sun.

Minogue said she “can’t believe” the public reaction to the news, telling BBC Radio 2’s The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show she will “always” be coming back to the UK after she moves.

Discussing the response to her move, Minogue said: “I’ve had friends call me, my friend at my local restaurant was like: ‘Kylie, what do you mean? You can’t go’

“I said: ‘I’m not really going. I’ve lived here for 30 years, I’m always going to be back.’”

Minogue said she does not think “too much will change” after her move as she will regularly return.

“I can’t not be here, are you kidding?” she said.

“I have spent a lot of time with my family this year in Australia and it felt really good and I have been talking about that for a while.

She also discussed her new single A Second To Midnight, which was recorded with Years & Years’ Olly Alexander.

Minogue said the singer was “so sweet and gorgeous”.

“We shot the video a couple of weeks ago, which was super fun and I just can’t wait for people to hear this,” she said.
