11 JULY 2008

There was an impromptu chance to catch up for Dannii and Kylie Minogue this week, as the Aussie siblings' paths crossed in Glasgow. Due to kick off the UK leg of her spectacular tour, showgirl Kylie was thrilled when her little sister - on judge duty with The X Factor - jetted into Scotland a day early to surprise her.

No doubt Kylie will have been glad of the chance to unwind while catching up with her little sister, too. Since receiving her OBE from Prince Charles last week it's been nonstop for the petite star, who's in the middle of her gruelling X2008 world tour.

And the high-energy dance routines seem to be taking their toll on the 40-year-old, who's been performing with bandaged knees at recent concerts. Undeterred, however, the dedicated diva - who shot to fame at the age of 18 - has recently vowed to keep performing well into her 60s. "But I won't be wearing hotpants any more!" she admitted.

Meanwhile, Dannii will have been hoping to find hopefuls with the star quality of her elder sister as, along with Girls Aloud beauty Cheryl Cole, music mogul Simon Cowell and manager Louis Walsh, she vetted potential pop stars of the future at the Glasgow round of X Factor auditions.
