Despite a triumphant return with new single 2 Hearts, Kylie Minogue has reportedly cancelled plans for a world tour due to concerns over her health.

Having successfully battled breast cancer after being diagnosed with the disease in 2005, the Aussie pop pixie was thought to be well enough to resume her full schedule.

But the 39-year-old singer has today confirmed she's not quite ready to take her stage show around world.

Talking to the Daily Mail, Minogue said: "The tour is not going to happen, it is far too soon. It kind of breaks my heart because this is what I'm in the business for. Not being able to go ahead with my plans is a real downer.

"Every woman has to face up to new priorities, near the top is health," she continued. "I take my health very seriously but not obsessively. Everything is about pacing yourself."

The former Neighbours actress was forced to cancel her showbiz tour in 2005 after her cancer diagnosis.

Her tenth studio album, cleverly titled X, is to be released on November 26th, while the pint-sized star will showcase songs from the album on The Kylie Show, on ITV1 on November 10th.
