Dannii Minogue learned new ‘lesbian lingo’ on I Kissed A Girl

Dannii Minogue learned a string of new “lesbian lingo” during her time presenting ‘I Kissed A Girl’.

The 52-year-old singer will be playing Cupid in the new BBC Three dating show - which sees 10 women try to find love - and admitted she had discovered a myriad of new terms used among the lesbian community during her time filming the programme.

Speaking to the BBC, she said: “I was on a learning curve with the boys, but with the girls, I actually needed a glossary of lesbian lingo to decode some of the conversations.

“In the best possible way, their language cuts to the chase - and I was happily catching up. You will know what I mean when you hear fun descriptions like ‘golden retriever’ and ‘black cat’.”

The 'All I Wanna Do' singer added she loved working on the show, and described the girls as “so much fun”.

She said: “The girls are so much fun. They wore their hearts on their sleeve and they did not hold back - with their affections as well as their opinions.

“They are so diverse in their personalities and in what they are looking for in a partner. Just remember the old saying, ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, as each episode reveals more and more about their vulnerability underneath the exterior.”

The ‘I Begin to Wonder’ hitmaker added that it was the contestants’ “genuine search for love” that she felt made the programme unique.

She explained: “The girls and their genuine search for love, with inhibitions left at home, we watch it all unfold in the sun-soaked romantic Italian landscape. In my role as ‘Cupid' I always hope that an attraction sparks with such intensity that it leads to a lasting relationship - but my lips are sealed as to whether that happens this series.

“One thing I can tell you is that it was the ultimate lesbian summer holiday that the girls loved so much - I got the feeling they didn’t want it to end. I am so so proud of these girls and can't wait for viewers to discover this groundbreaking and hugely entertaining series.”
