David Walliams Once Tried To Date Kylie Minogue, But She Turned Him Down

'I’ve loved her from afar for many years and I will always love her.'

David Walliams has revealed how Kylie Minogue once turned him down. 

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge admitted he enlisted the help of his friends to help get a date with the Aussie pop princess, only for her to say no. 


As they both appeared on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ Christmas special, the pair had a good old laugh about David’s attempts to woo her. 

He explained: “I’ve loved her from afar for many years and I will always love her. I have tried a little bit but it didn’t work at all, she weren’t having it. You can’t blame her though can you?

“No I didn’t, I sort of asked through other people [and they all said no she wouldn’t go on a date with me.]”

Kylie explained the pair are now good friend, adding: “We have lots of mutual friends so dinners with people in abundance.

Miranda Hart, Paul Hollywood and Keira Knightley are also guests on the show

Kylie made it up to David by letting him give her a fireman’s lift on the show, which also sees Miranda Hart, Keira Knightley and Paul Hollywood joining Jonathan for a chat. 

‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ airs on Saturday at 10.05pm on ITV.
