Pop singer-turned-Tv presenter Dannii Minogue has a bizarre new hobby - she runs a worm farm.

The star returned to her native Melbourne, Australia last year (13) but she still travels to the U.K. frequently because of work commitments and to stay in touch with her elder sister Kylie, who lives in London.

Her jet-set lifestyle makes it difficult for her to own any pets but the animal-loving brunette was so desperate for some creature company she has started a worm farm Down Under.

Minogue tells the U.K.'s Hello! magazine, "I have a worm farm... They're the only pets I can look after travelling between Melbourne and London so I'm getting into gardening as well."
