Everyone’s favourite lovebirds from the 80’s – Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, have reunited at last… performing their 1988 duet ‘Especially For You’ live on stage at London’s Hyde Park.
Minogue was headlining the Radio 2 Live concert when she started singing the duet with a gospel choir singing Donovan’s parts.
After the second chorus, Kylie said, “I need a dance partner,” at which point Donovan appeared on stage to huge applause.
Jason twirled Kylie around the stage before singing the final part of the song together.
“He didn’t know that was going to happen,” laughed Kylie as the song ended.
Incredibly, Donovan later revealed he had cycled to the venue simply to watch the show, before being called on stage.

Then, just when the crowd thought that the night couldn’t get any more retro, Rick Astley joined Kylie onstage to sing his 1987 hit, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up.’
“I don’t want to give you up or let you go,” Kylie told Astley, who then sang a version of ‘Kids’ which she originally sang with Robbie Williams.
“You are a beautiful, strong, wonderful woman,” said Astley
“You’ve just made my night. You’ve made my year!” said Kylie
