TARA BRADY talks to soap legend Jason Donovan

‘MUM AND DAD are a bit more relaxed,” Jason Donovan assures us. “But there’s still an element of chaos in the house. I’d forgotten all that strangeness.” [read the full article]

Pop mastermind from the 80s now has family fun in his sights

HE GAVE us Rick Astley's quiff, transformed Kylie Minogue from Erinsborough mechanic to global megastar and – somewhat less laudibly – took Sonia to number one.

Three decades on, Mike Stock (as in Stock Aitken Waterman) is once again a man on a mission.

The most successful songwriter-producer in British chart history, turned off by the modern flesh-laden music industry, is pioneering the notion of "U-certificate pop".

Mike Stock has brought his pop show Go! Go! Go! to Alton Towers. The impressario helped launch the careers of Kylie Minogue, left, and Rick Astley, inset left.

Kylie Minogue - Put Your Hands Up Lyrics Video

Earlier today Kylie uploaded a new ’80s remix of Put Your Hands Up to her YouTube page.

The extremely camp re-work is the handiwork of Stock Aitken Waterman’s “mix master” Pete Hammond, making this the closest she has ever come to a reunion with the famed Hit Factory.

While the song hasn’t been confirmed as a single, the pop icon left a message on YouTube naming it one of the highlights from her Aphrodite World Tour.

“Those of you who have been to a show will know that ‘Put Your Hands Up’ goes OFF!” she said.

“So as a tour thank you I wanted to share this 80′s-tastic remix by the legendary Pete Hammond. Enjoy!!”

Give the retro flashback a listen below. [read the full article and here and here]
