Kylie Minogue has a crush on 'The Voice' contestant Leo Ihenacho.
The pop star - who split recently from boyfriend Andres Velencoso - is a mentor on the singing show, replacing Jessie J, and was blown away by the hopeful during his audition on the launch show.
According to The Sun newspaper, the petite blonde hid behind her chair and told the other mentors Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Ricky Wilson she isn't able to focus while he's singing.
Leo - who was part of hip hop and UK garage project The Streets before taking part in 'Celebrity Love Island' in 2006 - has been a fan of Kylie's since the 80s when she was catapulted to the spotlight on soap 'Neighbours' as schoolgirl turned tomboy mechanic Charlene Robinson.
He said: "I've fancied 'Charlene' since I was yay high."
Kylie admits success in the music industry takes more than just a voice and is about the full package.
She explained: "You need the whole package. If it were solely about the voice, you'd not need a stage, hair, make-up or lights.
"I could sit in a dark room and wouldn't have to get ready."
