  Aussie Kylie named 'top Welsh woman'
Updated 19 November 2001, 16.42
Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue has been named one of the greatest Welsh women of all time - even though she's from Australia.

The pop princess appears on a list of the most famous people from Wales along with the likes of teen singer Charlotte Church and crooner Tom Jones.

But there is an explanation for Kylie's mention.

Big Brother

Her mother and grandmother were born in the Welsh valleys, and Kylie is apparently very proud of her roots in Wales.

Unfortunately, Big Brother's dizzy Helen Adams did not make it onto the list.
