Kylie Minogue: I want to get married soon

KYLIE Minogue hopes to get married soon.

The 48-year-old pop star became engaged to actor Joshua Sasse, 28, in February, but the loved-up couple have delayed tying the knot until same-sex marriage is legalised in her native Australia.

The blonde beauty told the Evening Standard newspaper: "Hopefully we won't have to wait too long."

Joshua previously revealed that he and Kylie have discussed the possibility of getting married in the Australian city of Melbourne, but don't feel "comfortable" getting wed until the law has been changed.

He explained: "There are chances of a Melbourne wedding but me and Kylie have talked about it and we are not comfortable getting married until this law has passed.

"That is something that we've talked about and decided on. Why should we? Why is it fair? Why are we more important than anyone else? It's not right and something's got to be done about it."

Meanwhile, Kylie's former lover Jason Donovan previously admitted he took "years" to get over his relationship with the 'Spinning Around' hitmaker.

The celebrity duo starred alongside each other in the Australian soap 'Neighbours' and also collaborated for the chart-topping single 'Especially for You'.

Jason said their break-up hit him especially hard because she subsequently embarked on a romance with his idol, the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

He said: "It was bad enough that she'd run off with anybody. But she happened to run into the arms of the greatest rock god of the period, the very guy I secretly wanted to be. That was a pretty big punch to take.

"It was an extremely painful parting of the ways and, without doubt, I took a long time to recover from it. Years, definitely."

Jason, 48, also said he is no longer in touch with Kylie and can't remember when they last spoke.

He shared: "Kylie and I had an incredible time together but we drifted apart. I can't remember the last time I spoke to her, it was years ago."
