Kylie Minogue was born to dad Ronald and mum Carol in 1968. She has a younger sister, Dannii, and a brother, Brendan.

The young Kylie attended Camberwell High School and, like her sister Dannii, developed an interest in performing from an early age. She first appeared on TV aged 11 and eventually got her big break in 1986 as Charlene Mitchell in Australian soap Neighbours.

Charlene’s romance with Scott Robinson – played by Jason Donovan – was hugely popular with viewers and their 1987 wedding was watched by 20 million people in Britain. The duo were also romantically linked off-screen.

Kylie left the show in 1988 and focused on her music career. Her debut single The Loco-Motion reached No1 in Australia and she was soon releasing hits in the UK too.

The petite star dated INXS frontman Michael Hutchence in the 1990s and her songs continued to chart well.

In 2000 Kylie Minogue returned to her pop roots and had a huge hit with dance track Spinning Around, which featured a video where she famously sported tiny gold hot pants.

A year later she had her biggest success to date with Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, a worldwide hit.

Kylie was forced to cancel her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour in 2005 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer aged just 36. She was supported through the ordeal by her family and then-boyfriend Olivier Martinez, who she split from in 2007.

After her recovery Kylie resumed the tour and returned to the music scene. She also continued to act and appeared in the 2007 Christmas special of Doctor Who.

The Aussie star began dating model Andrés Velencoso in 2008 but the relationship ended in 2013.

Kylie Minogue returned to TV screens in 2014 as a coach on the third UK series of The Voice and later appeared on the Australian version.

The singer is known as a gay icon and has worn some spectacular stage costumes over the years, particularly during her elaborate Kylie Summer 2015 concerts.
