KYLIE MINOGUE has had an operation in Australia to remove a cancerous lump in her breast.

The singer has been operated on at Melbourne’s St Frances Xavier Cabrini Hospital.

Surgeon Jenny Senior said: “Her spirits are high and she’s feeling fine…I am very pleased to be able to confirm that the operation was successful. I feel confident that we caught the cancer in time and that she is now on the road to complete recovery.”

Earlier the week it was announced that Minogue wouldn’t be able to play the Australian leg of her Showgirl world tour after being diagnosed with the cancer. An appearance at next month’s Glastonbury Festival is also off.
