Hip-hop hunk LL Cool J was mesmerised by a mystery beauty on a recent trip aboard EUROSTAR - only to find out the "little cutie" was in fact KYLIE MINOGUE.

The rapper was travelling in the first class section of the train, which was heading from Paris, France to London, when he spotted Minogue.

And when his assistant told him the lovely stranger was pop superstar Minogue, LL Cool J was clearly unfamiliar with her name.

A source says, "The guy came back and told him it was Kylie. But he seemed none the wiser."
