Pop hunk Brian McFadden fell for Australian beauty Delta Goodrem when they duetted together at last year's (14DEC04) British ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE - and made his move at the after-show party.

McFadden insists he didn't find Goodrem attractive when they recorded their single ALMOST HERE last summer (04) because the INNOCENT EYES singer always wore tracksuits.

But when he saw Goodrem in the stunning gown she wore for the Royal Variety Performance, he saw her in a different light and enjoyed his first kiss with the 20-year-old.

McFadden says, "I didn't see Delta in that way until the Royal Variety show. Up until that show I'd never thought about Delta in a romantic way. She was always wearing tracksuits when we were recording. It was work.

"At the Royal Variety she was wearing a lovely dress and she looked stunning, but that was the first time I thought about it. At the after-show party I snogged her. I don't think she was too drunk but I was a bit."
