Ms Minogue—aided by some very famous friends—officially ushers in the festive season

Considering she’s been a (multi) national institution for several decades, it’s perhaps surprising that this is Ms Minogue’s first festive venture. Entirely unsurprisingly, Kylie and Christmas are the most natural and inviting of fits. An ecstatic romp through yuletide classics, this—like all good parties—is made by the quality of its guests. Iggy Pop is a joyously leftfield presence on “Christmas Wrapping”, James Corden plays it straight on an affecting take of Yazoo’s “Only You” before sister Dannii helps rev things up in time for New Year’s Eve on “100 Degrees”.
