Kylie Minogue shares blast from the past

Kylie Minogue shares blast from the past

Australian pop legend Kylie Minogue has shared a number of nostalgic photos of her and old cast flame Jason Donovan, to mark his birthday.

Minogue only just celebrated her birthday last week, but that didn’t stop her from sending her former on-screen and off-screen boyfriend on Neighbours, well wishes for his big day.

The pop singer and Donovan were Australia’s most popular couple on Ramsay Street when they played Charlene Mitchell and Scott Robinson in the Australian soap in the late 1980s.

Of course, they also shared a special connection in real life too.

"What amazing times!", Minogue wrote as she shared the throwback photographs to celebrate Donovan’s 52nd birthday.

Fans were excited to take the trip down memory lane, with more than 34,000 people liking Minogue's post.

"The original IT couple," one Instagram user said.

"Suddenly you're seeing me...just the way I am" another person wrote, quoting Angry Anderson's Suddenly, the song played during Scott and Charlene's wedding day episode.

In 2018, the pair reunited during a gig at Hyde Park, when Donovan legendarily joined Minogue on stage to perform Especially For You.

The singer also turned 52 just a few days before her old flame and to mark the momentous occasion, she opened her own wine label.

The star said that despite the wine launch, she would be having a quiet birthday.

"I'll be at home and no doubt spend some time talking with family and friends," she said.

"I'll most definitely be having a glass (or two) of rose to celebrate and have so much gratitude for my birthday, my family and my friends."
