Student bets on dating Kylie
Brett Allen
Mr Allen has to spend at least two hours with the star to win the bet
A 21-year-old student stands to win 2,500 if he can persuade Kylie Minogue to go on a date with him.

Brett Allen, from Canterbury, has bet 25 on securing a date with the pop princess in the next 12 months.

He said he was flattered when bookmakers gave him "generous" odds of 100/1 of achieving the feat.

He said: "100/1 sounds like I would have a good chance.

"It is nice to think I have got a much better chance of dating Kylie than winning the lottery."

I am not a nutter and I will not follow her around everywhere but if the chance comes up to meet her than I will take it.

The University of Kent law student said the bet was prompted by his reputation for being a hit with women.

"I have a bit of a reputation with some people at my university for being a ladies' man - hence the idea for the bet," he said.

But Mr Allen said he has yet to come up with a detailed plan of how he is going to actually meet the Australian beauty.

He said: "I am not a nutter and I will not follow her around everywhere but if the chance comes up to meet her than I will take it.

"But I will not use chat up lines as girls do not go for them."

Bookmakers William Hill said Mr Allen would have to spend a minimum of two hours on a date with the singer in 2004 for him to win the bet.
