As she slipped out of a London nightspot in the early hours of yesterday, she certainly looked like she had something to smile about.

And Kylie Minogue made sure to raise her left hand to waiting cameras, perhaps giving a flash of the reason for her joy.

The 47-year-old singer was wearing what appeared to be a dazzling, square-cut engagement ring as she left the exclusive Chiltern Firehouse restaurant in Marylebone.

She was trailed by her younger boyfriend, 28-year-old British actor Joshua Sasse.


Miss Minogue looked coy as she raised her hand to touch her black bowler as the pair left through the back door at around 3am yesterday.

The couple only met in September when Miss Minogue made a cameo appearance on the US TV series Galavant, in which Sasse plays the lead. Their relationship quickly blossomed. In December Miss Minogue broke down in tears on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs after she let Sasse - the father of a two-year-old boy - choose one of her 'castaway' tracks.

He picked a recording of himself reading a love poem, As I Look Up, which was later revealed to have been written by his father Dominic, who died in a plane crash when Joshua was just four.

Last month Miss Minogue also revealed that since meeting her new love, she had cancelled plans to spend this year travelling around the world on her own.

The singer has had her fair share of heartbreak over the years. She dated Neighbours co-star Jason Donovan during her run on the show, then rocker Michael Hutchence for two years until 1991.

She went on to have a relationship with Olivier Martinez from 2003 to 2007. She then had a relationship with model Andres Velencoso from 2008 to 2013.
When asked if the pair were engaged, Miss Minogue's spokesman declined to comment.
