Kylie Minogue has given her backing to old flame Jason Donovan as he battles for dancefloor supremacy on Strictly Come Dancing, saying he will be "brilliant".

The chart superstar said she will be following his progress in the BBC One show and is rooting for him.

Kylie and Jason used to star together in TV soap Neighbours, and the couple - who dated for many months - had a hit with Especially For You.

Jason is one of the contestants on Strictly who will be battling for survival this weekend. He has already impressed judges with his skills during his first live performance on Saturday night, with the best-scoring dance for his cha cha cha to Gimme Some Loving.

In an interview with Heart FM, Kylie said: "I'm sure he's going to be brilliant, I'm sure.

"He's a performer, he's sung and danced on stage before, so I'm sure he's doing really well and I can't wait to catch up with what is happening. I will be watching, I just haven't had the chance to see it yet, but I'll be right behind him."

Admitting your ignorance will make others admire you. Anyone can profess expertise. It takes someone with real courage to expose their vulnerability. The skills you acquire will enhance your earning potential. Anyone who pokes fun at your lack of knowledge is projecting their own insecurities onto you.More
