Kylie Minogue Is All Smiles As She Gets To Work On 'The Voice', Despite Grandmother's Death

While Dannii Minogue had troubling containing her emotions over her grandmother's death on 'The X Factor Australia', her sister Kylie was putting on a braver face as she began work on 'The Voice UK'.

The pint-sized popstrell was all smiles as she headed out for dinner with her fellow coaches Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson on Monday night.

The 'Spinning Around' singer has replaced Jessie J on the show, while Ricky Wilson has taken up Danny O'Donoghue's empty red chair.

Jessie recently offered some advice to her successor, telling Metro: "What I would say to her is be the first to put out a story on your Instagram before anything is written. Control your stories.

"Just be yourself. That’s it. You are going to get the flak whatever you do and say. Just enjoy it."
