Page 3 Profile: Kylie and Jason reunited singers


Back together, for ever?

Tonight former Neighbours stars Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are to sing their duet "Especially for You" at Pete Waterman's Hit Factory Live show in London. A concert spokesperson said they'd never before performed it live (at least not without miming).

The show was set to happen in Hyde Park last July, but it was cancelled after the ground became sodden. Pete Waterman said it probably wouldn't have been too sensible to have people dancing "to Rick Astley in three feet of mud".

A popular reunion?

The lead singer of Dead or Alive, Pete Burns, whose group will also be performing, didn't seem too impressed that Waterman had managed to get Kylie to top the bill. He told the Digital Spy website: "She's got a lovely voice and her records are catchy, but then again, so is herpes."

There's no doubt that everyone's highlight of the gig will be their cheesy duet, however. As Kylie said before the concert's initial cancellation: "I don't think we'll even need to sing it. I'm sure the audience all went through the Neighbours wedding."
