Kylie Minogue has admitted she gets star struck by 'X Factor' boyband One Direction

Kylie Minogue gets star struck by One Direction.

The 'Better Than Today' singer recently performed on 'The X Factor' - on which her sister Dannii Minogue is a judge - and is such a fan of the programme, she couldn't help but be overwhelmed when she met some of the contestants.

She said: "I met Wagner and I do have a soft spot for him actually.

"Actually, I was talking to this girl before the show backstage and then two of the boys from One Direction walked by and I found myself going, 'Oh, there's two of One Direction!' I was just like, 'Oh god, there are those people I've been watching week after week. Right in front of me!' "

Kylie - who is dating Spanish model Andres Velencoso - also admitted she rarely ever goes out at weekends any more because she is so obsessed with 'The X factor'.

She said: "It's TV dinners every Saturday and Sunday. If my boyfriend's round, I rope him into watching it with me. I'm like, 'No sport tonight honey, sorry, it's 'The X Factor'."
