Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan have reunited on stage for the first time in 23 years. The Australian duo sang their 1988 smash hit Especially For You to an enthralled audience at the London's O2 arena. During an interlude, Jason swept Kylie off her feet in an embrace.

Pop producer Pete Waterman had planned to reunite the pair at his outdoor Hit Factory concert, but it was cancelled earlier this month because of safety fears due to heavy rainfall and mud in London's Hyde Park.

Waterman said today: "We are going to do it again at Christmas. We are going to do two nights at the 02 or at least one night, we've just got to confirm one artist who is due to go home for Christmas, I'll give you a clue there."

He added: "I just have to convince that artist to stay here until at least Christmas Eve and we can do it all the way we want to."
