Kylie Minogue channels Charlene from Neighbours with blonde curls

Kylie Minogue stepped out in London with fiancé Joshua Sasse at the weekend – and left fans wondering if they'd stepped back into the '80s. The singer showed off a new blonde perm during the outing, paying homage to her role in hit TV show Neighbours.

Fans of the 47-year-old will remember her time on Australian soap well, when she portrayed Charlene Robinson for two years from 1986, with her character regularly sporting the tight ringlets.

The Especially For You singer performed at a wedding in the Capital on Sunday night, and was later spotted dining with Joshua, 28, at The Woseley restaurant. Kylie, who quit Neighbours in favour of her blossoming music career almost 30 years ago, looked as glamorous as ever in an all-black ensemble. The pop diva opted for a black top and trousers, adding a touch of sparkle with a pair of chic diamante-studded heels, and showing off her sparkling engagement ring. Meanwhile, Joshua revealed he had gone for a new look, as he debuted his two-toned facial hair.

The couple, who have been dating since September, looked as loved-up as ever while enjoying a rare night off from their hectic work schedules. It's been a whirlwind few months for the pair, who revealed in February that they were engaged, announcing the happy news with a traditional advert placed in a newspaper.


It read: "The engagement is announced between Joshua, son of the late Dominic Sasse and of Mary Heele (nee Macauley), of Herefordshire, and Kylie, eldest daughter of Ronald and Carol Minogue, of Melbourne, Australia."
