Kylie wants no INXS love scenes

Kylie Minogue's romance with INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is set to feature in a TV series about the band.

The Australian show is thought to cover their relationship but Kylie's representatives have asked to keep the scenes tasteful, says The Sun.

In one episode the programme recreates Michael and Kylie's rumoured steamy session in first class on a Qantas flight during the 90s, while then-PM of Australia Bob Hawke was also on.

Kylie has never confirmed she joined the mile high club on the flight but her team have reportedly been in contact with the show to ask them to tone down explicit scenes, with Samantha Jade playing the pop star.

A source told The Sun: "Kylie's people have been making enquiries about the script and her depiction. They have no legal standing or ability to demand any changes, but they are insisting it is handled respectfully.

"Early drafts of the script wouldn't have been anything you could have watched with your parents, but the passion scene is now thought to be more suggestive than explicit."

The late INXS star famously said at the time that his hobby was "corrupting" squeaky-clean Kylie.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
