15 JUNE 2009

More than 20 years after a curly-haired female mechanic and a good-looking trainee reporter fell in love on Aussie soap Neighbours, the actors behind their characters, who were an item in real life too, were reunited.

Kylie Minogue made a gesture of support for her former screen colleague and ex Jason Donovan by going along to watch him in a West End musical.

The singer also took along her sister Dannii and their mother Carol to see Jason play a drag queen in The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert.

Afterwards the pop princess went backstage to chat with Jason and all the cast. The pair embraced warmly as she congratulated her friend on his performance.

Watching Priscilla would have given Kylie an ego boost as well since the production pays homage to her in its script and even includes her 1994 hit Confide In Me in the climax of its second act.
