Kylie gets tearful on Aussie TV

Kylie Minogue couldn't help shedding a tear as she relived her battle with cancer during an interview for Australian television.

The pop star, who recently reached the five-year all clear milestone, became tearful as she remembered a visit to a children's ward for Australian show Sunday Night, and had to leave in the middle of the interview to compose herself, reported the Daily Mail.

"I was talking to some parents across the other side of a bed and... they really caught me off guard, they just eyeballed me and said, 'How are you, and we hope you get through it'..." she told presenter Molly Meldrum before apologising and rushing out.

When she returned, Kylie explained why the encounter had upset her so much.

"The greatest part of my job and what I do is the humanity of it, and there's certain moments where that really cuts through," she said.

"I'm always so go, go, go and the moment I thought about that, it stopped me in my tracks."

The 42-year-old, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2005, kept a brave face throughout the darkest days.

"I don't think the public saw... well, I stayed indoors. My family got me through really rotten, dark moments," she added.
