Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan reunite

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan reunited for the first time in 23 years at a show in London last night.

The pair teamed up for a live performance of their hugely successful 1988 duet 'Especially For You' at the 'Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker' concert in the UK capital.

The Australian pair's reunion was met with rapturous audience applause, with Donovan even sweeping Minogue off her feet at one point in the performance.

The pop princess asked the audience: "How long have you waited for this for?" before singing the track's closing notes.

London's O2 Arena was packed with stars from the 80s and 90s, including Rick Astley, Bananarama and Steps.

The concert organisers only this week revealed Minogue's involvement in the show, having previously advertised her as a "very special guest".

A statement read: "The Hit Factory audience are in for a very special treat as Kylie Minogue is confirmed to bring the show to an unforgettable end by performing with Jason [Donovan] on Especially For You.

"They last performed it together in 1989."
