Kylie Minogue Should Be So Lucky As She Announces Engagement To Joshua Sasse

After weeks of hints and speculation Kylie Minogue has announced her engagement to Joshua Sasse, a British actor nearly two decades her junior.

The pop star, 47, revealed the upcoming nuptials with Sasse, 28, less than 48 hours after her lover sent fans into a frenzy by calling her his fiancee.

A forthcoming marriage announcement was placed in Daily Telegraph beneath the names Mr JS von Sasse and Miss KA Minogue.

It read: "The engagement is announced between Joshua, son of the late Dominic Sasse and of Mary Heale (nee Macauley), of Herefordshire, and Kylie, eldest daughter of Ronald and Carol Minogue, of Melbourne, Australia."

Kylie met her husband-to-be in September and she has spoken publicly about their romance, as well as appearing at showbiz events sporting a glittering jewel on her wedding finger.

At the NME Awards on Wednesday Sasse was reportedly overheard referring to the Australian singer as his fiancee.

In December the star was a castaway on BBC's Desert Island Disks, when her lover surprised her with a reading of a love poem penned by his father, poet Dominic Sasse.
