Singer Jason Donovan is excited about joining Kylie Minogue onstage for a performance of their hit duet Especially For You later this month (Jul12), as the former best friends have gone three years without a chat.
The pop duo, who last performed together 23 years ago and even dated in the 1980s, are to take to the stage at a tribute concert for music producers Stock Aitken and Waterman in London.
They first met on the set of Australian soap opera Neighbours, which propelled them to fame, but Donovan has confessed he and Minogue have grown apart in recent years.
He tells the U.K.'s TV Buzz magazine, "It's going to be a really wonderful moment. I think that for both of us it will probably feel more sentimental than emotional because we've both moved on so far in our lives.
"Kylie is great and she looks fantastic, but we've gone from being really close - as we were back then - to being just acquaintances now. Before we agreed to do this reunion, I hadn't actually spoken to her for three years because we lead such different lives."
