Kylie meets Newsround winners!

Kylie at the event

One hundred kids met Kylie Minogue on Saturday - thanks to Newsround!

They won our competition to meet the singer as she promoted her new children's book in central London.

One lucky Press Packer, 11-year-old Yasmeen, even got to interview Kylie and you will be able to see her report on two of Monday's Newsround shows.

Newsround's Press Pack team, who filmed the event, said: "Kylie was really friendly, chatty and happy. She seemed excited to be there."

Kylie, who has battled breast cancer, wore a knee-length dress decorated with flowers and sequins.

Her book is called The Showgirl Princess. It came out on 21 September.

Kylie is set to return to the stage in Australia in November.

Tickets for her comeback gigs in London in January sold out in six minutes when they went on sale this summer.

Catch Yasmeen's interview with Kylie on Monday's Newsround at 4.25pm on the CBBC channel and the 5.25pm show on BBC1.
