Singing superstars Bono and Kylie Minogue enraged fellow VIP's at the IVOR NOVELLO AWARDS - by insisting the exclusive bar be shut so they could have a chat.

Drinkers at the star-studded ceremony last night (22MAY03) were left gasping as the pair talked for over half and hour before allowing fellow revellers into 'their space'.

A member of the security team says, "They were getting a little bit merry and wanted some peace and quiet so they could talk. There was just the two of them in there.

"We wouldn't usually shut the bar for anyone - but for Kylie and Bono we made an exception."
