A reunited Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan to perform ‘Especially For You’ live

The 'Neighbours' pair will sing their 1988 single in London's Hyde Park

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are to reunite and sing their 1988 single ‘Especially For You’ at the Hit Factory Live event in London’s Hyde Park on July 11.

It will be the first time in 23 years that the pair – who both starred in Australian soap opera Neighbours – have performed the track together. Breaking the news of the performance to fans, Kylie said:

I’m going to sing ‘Especially For You’ with Jason Donovan. I don’t think we’ll even need to sing it; I’m sure the audience all went through the Neighbours wedding. It’s going to bring the house down!

The song was written by production combo Stock, Aitken and Waterman, whose work will be celebrated at the one-day event. Other acts appearing on the bill include Steps, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Dead Or Alive, Pepsi & Shirlie, Princess, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, Sybil, 2 Unlimited, Lonnie Gordon and Brother Beyond.
