Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan's 'Especially for You' has hit 1 million sales in the UK.

The song was released 26 years ago and initially debuted at number two.

Kylie told the Official Charts Company: "I'm thrilled to hear 'Especially for You' has become a million seller!

"Although so much time has passed since Jason and I recorded it in Sydney with Mike Stock, it has the ability to transport us all back to that time.

"It's so touching to have a song which has a place in so many peoples' hearts and one which remains a huge fan favourite."

Producer Pete Waterman said: "This was one of those records that nearly never made it - we mixed it - then scrapped it - started a new one with only the vocals, had six hours to do it all, mix it, and get it to the factory!

"We did it and it went on to sell over a million. Those were the days!"
