It's been twenty years since Kylie played the frizzy-haired Charlene Mitchell but Jason Donovan is still sticking up for his neighbour.

The I'm A CelebrityGet Met Out Of Here! star was keen to sing the praises of the Aussie pop princess after the pint-sized singer split with her boyfriend of four years, Olivier Martinez, last week while rumours that the French actor had been unfaithful were regular tabloid fodder.

But Kylie fans fear not. According to her ex and Especially for You duet partner, the Spinning Around singer will be bounce back.

Speaking to MTV news, Jason said: "She is not somebody who will just walk away. She is a strong character with a good career and she has a great family around her - thats all you need in this life to get through anything."

And Jason, who has just announced a greatest hits tour, says has also said he that there are no hard feelings between him and his ex-girlfriend: "She didnt ask me on her tour. I could have felt disappointed about that but I respect her artistic integrity to make those decisions on her own merit."

Seems like Jason has proved that good neighbours can become good friends!
