The singer said she was "thrilled and honoured" to be recognised at the Silver Clef Awards and added that 25 years on, she was just "hitting my stride".

It makes me proud, really proud. I can definitely see with some distance what's gone well, what hasn't gone well, the journey that I've been on, what I've learnt.

Speaking about a concert to celebrate the hits of Stock Aitken Waterman, Kylie said she was looking forward to being reunited with former Neighbours co-star Jason Donovan.

I don't know what it's going to be like, I think it will be a laugh, it will be quite surreal for sure.
