Kylie Minogue feels like her boyfriend's secretary.

The 'All the Lovers' singer - who has been dating Andres Velencoso since October 2008 - fell for the Spanish model as soon as they met at a party thrown by Dita Von Teese, but admits she still has to help him with his English.

She said in an interview with British talk show host Jonathan Ross: "I couldn't help but notice - yes, he's gorgeous.

"I have to help with his English sometimes. I have to help him with texting - I'm his secretary."

The 42-year-old star also spoke of her desire to help other people suffering from breast cancer following her own struggle with the deadly disease in 2005.

She said: "You're facing darkness. If you want to go away from that you have to reach out and find positive things.

"Whatever hope or help I can give to people in similar circumstances, I want to spread that message."

Kylie relied on the support of her family and friends to get her through her illness but admits she got upset on their behalf because of how "helpless" her loved ones felt.

She explained: "The goodness I felt coming in my direction, I almost felt overwhelmed by it.

"I felt so bad for my mum and dad because they felt so helpless - the pressure on them was incredible."
