Diminutive pop pixie Kylie Minogue has debuted the highly-anticipated video for new single All The Lovers, and it's one of her steamiest yet.
We've seen the singing siren clad in gilded, butt-hugging hot pants, and cleavage-popping, plunging white catsuits - and now we get the full-on flesh-flashing routine, with a human pile-up thrown in for good measure.
Scantily-clad flash mob
The promo for All The Lovers, the first single to be lifted from her new album, Aphrodite, was directed by Joseph Khan (think Britney's Toxic video).
Clad in a stringy white tee fashioned over what looks like one of Madonna's old conical bras, Kyles writhes like a wanton sex kitten among her loyal, panty-clad subjects.
And whatever Kylie's had, everyone's having. Her co-stars drop their keks one by one, succumb to their raging hormones and passionately pash for the fleshy flash mob.
Not surprisingly, the singer's most famous asset also rears its familiar head in the promo.
Speaking of donning those iconic hot pants once more, Kylie said: "Every time I put on a pair of hotpants I think, 'This is the last time'. But it's not. It makes me laugh that my bum has become such an obsession!
"When it came to the video and I knew I was going to be in tiny hotpants again, I was like, 'Cover my legs and bum with body make-up'. It's definitely the way forward and my secret to having a great bottom!"
Verdict: Utterly bonkers, but so very, very Kylie.
Feast your eyes on the spectacle below:
All The Lovers
is out on June 5.
Meanwhile, over on fantasy island...
Word at the water cooler says Kylie's 18-month relationship with Spanish hottie and model
Andres Velencoso Segura
is on the skids.
Let's reel this one in and give the rumour some context. See, what's fuelled the split talk is the fact that Segura was a no-show at the
Sex & The City 2
premiere in London last Friday.
Kylie was snapped trotting down the red carpet alone, which undoubtedly loosened everyone's lips and set tongues wagging.
She also reportedly spent her 42nd birthday in London on Friday without her lover.
then took the batten and ran with it, reporting that the pair had a blazing row last Wednesday, after which Segura reportedly walked out on her.
A source told the
: "They had a massive row on Wednesday of last week, at the end of which he told her it was over.
"She and Andres had been bickering for a few days. She got quite critical of him, complaining he was not supporting her enough. Andres had enough. He told her it was over, that he did not need that kind of stress in his life," the insider said.
Turbo-boosted whisk firmly in hand, the snitch added: "It seems to be the same old story as has plagued many of Kylie's relationships. She worries that she is not worthy of her lover's affection - especially, as has happened this time and in the past, if she is dating a hot young male model."
Kylie's reps have trashed the split rumours, insisting the couple is absolutely fine.
We're inclined to agree. Just because the bloke doesn't rock up as her +1 at an event doesn't mean they've harpooned their relationship, silly.

Rumours have been rife for months that
's been dogged by ill-health, spurred on by various fainting spells on stage and whatnot.
Then there's the speculation that she's suffering from lupus after it emerged she's been tested for the disease.
But cool your jets everyone, the wacky warbler's fine. In a new interview with veteran broadcaster
, Gaga spills the beans about her health.
"I have tested borderline positive for [lupus]," she says in the interview, adding, "As of right now, I do not have it, but I have to take good care of myself."
Also noteworthy is her revelation that she was asked to be
's opener on his
This Is It
She told King: "You know, it's always very difficult because I don't necessarily like to talk about those very personal things that happened. But I guess I can speak about it now.
"I was actually asked to open for Michael on his tour. We were going to open for him at the O2 and we were working on making it happen. I believe there was some talk about lots of the openers doing duets with Michael on stage."
Gaga duetting with the King of Pop? Crikey, that would have been killer. What could have been...
