Kylie Minogue Confirms She’s Relocating Back Home To Australia After 30 Years In The UK

“I won’t be a stranger,” the singer insisted.

Kylie Minogue has confirmed she is relocating back home to Australia after more than 30 years living in London.

The pop superstar made the decision to return to her home city of Melbourne after spending the last six months Down Under with her family.

Confirming the news during an interview on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Wednesday, Kylie said: “I spent a lot of time with my family this year and it felt really good.”

But despite being over 10,000 miles away the UK, the singer insisted she’ll still be back to her adopted home regularly.

“I won’t be a stranger,” she insisted.

Discussing the response to her move, Kylie said: “I’ve had friends call me, my friend at my local restaurant was like: ‘Kylie, what do you mean? You can’t go’.

“I said: ‘I’m not really going. I’ve lived here for 30 years, I’m always going to be back.’”

The 53-year-old added that she does not think “too much will change” after her move as she will regularly return.

“I can’t not be here, are you kidding?” she said.

Kylie’s move back to Australia will bring her closer to her parents Ron and Carol as well as her sister Dannii, brother Brendan and her nieces and nephews.

However, it’s been reported that her partner Paul Solomons won’t be making the move with her.

Instead, the couple, who have been together for three and a half years, are apparently hoping a long-distance relationship will work.

Kylie moved to London in the early 1990s after her music career took off.

She is expected to make the big move back Down Under before the year is out.

On Wednesday Kylie unveiled her latest single, a duet with Years & Years, aka It’s A Sin star Olly Alexander.

A Second To Midnight is the second time the pair have collaborated this year, after Kylie provided guest vocals on the summer hit Starstruck.
