Dannii Minogue has shared an emotional update about her love life, announcing she identifies as queer.

The 52-year-old singer is returning to her role of Cupid on BBC Three dating show I Kissed A Girl.

The programme follows the success of I Kissed A Boy last year, and will see 10 women try to find love, starting with a kiss.

At the launch of the programme on Thursday, Dannii reportedly fought back tears, confirming she identifies as queer herself.

She said: ‘I identify as queer in a weird way.’ 

Talking about the programme, she went on: ‘This is so important. There hasn’t been a show for the girls in the reality gay dating world.

‘It’s like we need this to happen. I’m hoping that there are parties up and down the country.’

When asked if Danni is attracted to women like the contestants in the history-making show, she added, according to MailOnline: ‘You girls are hot. You know it. I love it. I’m here for it. Is that an answer?’

Speaking around the time I Kissed A Boy launched, Dannii shared her own pride over being part of it.

On what it meant to be hosting the show, she exclusively told ‘This is going to change the daily life paths of many, many people.

‘There’s so much to be learned from the show, for families, friends and allies, and even for people who attack the community.

‘I think they’re attacking something they don’t know about, or they feel like they’ve never met anyone that’s gay.

‘I’m so happy that BBC Three is kicking the door down, putting the show out there because it’s nuts that it’s 2023 and this has never happened before.’

I Kissed A Boy is available to stream now on BBC iPlayer. I Kissed A Girl launches on May 5.
