Kylie Minogue has been drafted in to guest star on the Christmas special of Doctor Who.
The Aussie songstress has what the BBC are calling “a major lead role” in an hour long episode called Voyage of the Damned. 

Executive producer of the show Russell T Davies says that he is “delighted and excited” to have secured Minogue’s services and promised “this will be the most ambitious and best Christmas episode yet.”

The 39-year-old singer will join the cast and crew when filming starts at the end of this month in Cardiff.

There’s no word yet on the specifics of Minogue’s character on the show.
