Kylie's partner reads poem by late father to her on Desert Island Discs

Kylie Minogue's beau, Joshua Sasse, read out a sensual poem written by his late father, Dominic Sasse on today's Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4.

Minogue broke 73 years of BBC convention by asking her partner to choose a track for her, and the British actor chose 'As I Look Up' which included the following:

"I would bend to press my eager face into your neck, where the secret flesh is furred like peaches behind a curtain of caramel scented curls. Without asking, I would pull you down with my devoted hands to express, my fluent tongue to endear. We would smear our mouths with ardent kisses and cry aloud from loving, as we lay beneath the arches of that careless wanton day.”

On hearing the prose, Minogue took a while to compose herself, saying she was a 'mess' and was shedding tears of joy: "I think I stopped breathing for half of that. Breathe Minogue!'

The couple met in September on the set of the US TV show, Galavant.

Minogue continued to tell presenter, Kirsty Young: "I have a love in my life, which is just a beautiful thing.” Minogue explains that Sasse is a “huge fan” of the BBC radio programme.

The recorded poem, which Minogue later selects as the disc to keep if the others were washed away, was written by Sasse’s father, a poet who was setting up a trekkers’ lodge in Nepal when he was killed in a plane crash at the age of 37.

On Friday (December 11), Minogue performed a sold out Christmas concert at the iconic Royal Albert Hall with the philarmonic orchestra and choir. She was joined on stage by her sister, Dannii Minogue and Chrissie Hynde.
