Pop princess Kylie Minogue finally made her Glastonbury debut on Saturday - five years after her battle with cancer forced her to pull out.

The Aussie diva joined camp US disco group Scissor Sisters on stage to perform Any Which Way.

In 2005 she was due to headline but had to cancel when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Looking emotional but happy the former Neighbours star did not speak directly to the crowd but did wave and blow kisses.

The 42-year-old performed an energetic dance routine with Scissor Sisters singers Ana Matronic and Jake Shears. When she left the stage she kissed Shears and said to him "remember this".

When Minogue walked on stage she raised the biggest roar of the weekend from the crowd.

Fans Jim and Lynne Dobson, from Coventry, missed Minogue in 2005 so were delighted to have finally seen her on Glastonbury's famous Pyramid Stage.

Mrs Dobson said: "In 2005 we really wanted to see Kylie but obviously she was not on. When we heard a rumour yesterday that she would be performing we couldn't believe it. I love Scissor Sisters as well so it was the perfect combination."

Rosie North, 29, from York, only wished Minogue had done more.

"They should have given Kylie U2's headline slot last night. She would have got the crowd going whereas Gorillaz were a bit flat," she said. "That short appearance was the highlight so far for me. She gets everyone singing and dancing. It was crackers near the front when she came on."
