The 'Golden' singer's partner Paul Solomons - who hails from Caerphilly, South Wales - impressed her grandmother when he met her extended family during a trip to mark Kylie's grandma's 100th birthday.

Speaking on the Jonathan Ross Show, she said: "This trip, because it was her 100th birthday, all the extended family were there. It was really meet the parents x 100. He'd just flown in the day before. He did really well. They definitely approve. We settled down and Paul got to spend some time with my granny … he'd done some google research and learned a couple of phrases in Welsh and would drop that with granny at the lunch table. She loved someone speaking Welsh to her, so he got top marks."

Meanwhile, Kylie previously admitted she still has “scars” from her broken engagement.

The ‘All the Lovers’ hitmaker said: “I still maintain I didn't feel heartbroken, I just felt broken - 2017 was spent writing 'Golden' and, by 2018, when it came out. I'd met my current boyfriend. So time changes everything. There are still some scars. I think that's just what happens.

"Otherwise, you wouldn't have been that invested, or you wouldn't have gone through all of those emotions. There's self-doubt as well, like, 'How did that happen? How did I let that happen?' I'm trying not to sound too dramatic about it but it does shape you as a person and it's part of your bounty of experience. Time heals, so it does seem less dramatic once it's in the rear-view mirror. But there's still definitely space for melancholy because that's part of life."
