JASON Donovan thinks he may have spent the rest of his life with Kyle Minogue – if they hadn’t become so famous.
The 52-year-old actor also says that he knew her hit song Locomotion was the beginning of the end of their relationship.
The pair starred together as teenagers on Neighbours and dated for three years.
And an astonishing 19.6 million viewers tuned in to watch their characters Scott and Charlene tie the knot in 1987.
But Dancing on Ice star Jason said that moment was the beginning of the end.
Jason said: “Had Kylie and I not worked in the profession that we did, had we just been a couple of kids with normal jobs and ordinary lives then maybe things would have turned out differently for us. Working in such close proximity to one another put pressure on the relationship.”
The pair were still an item when Kylie landed her first number one hit in 1988 with Locomotion.
Revealing the moment Kylie told him, Jason said: “You are happy for me aren’t you?” she asked. 'Of course I am', I replied! And I was but I had this genuinely sinking feeling, as if I knew that was the end for us.
Writing in his book My Story Uncut Jason added: “I loved her and wanted her to do well. But at the same time her growing success was making me uncomfortable. And, if I am completely honest about it, I was jealous. I wanted to have success…and all that went with it.”
Kylie and Jason split in 1989 and the Spinning Around singer quickly announced she was dating INXS rocker Michael Hutchence who died in 1997.
Earlier this week we told how Jason, who is now happily married to wife Angela Malloch, had risked his Dancing On Ice boss’s fury after refusing to do "dangerous" show moves because he’s terrified of injuries.
In last Sunday's premiere episode, viewers saw how multiple competitors – both celebrity and professional skaters – were rushed to hospital after suffering horrific injuries in rehearsals.
Jason admitted he doesn't want to end up in A&E like Denise Van Outen who dislocated her shoulder in a horror fall on the ice..
He told OK! magazine : "My wife is worried about me getting injured, and so am I.
"If you've had a year like 2020 and you haven't really been earning and everything shifts to 2021 and you suddenly find yourself in A&E with a broken arm or leg, it doesn't bode well for cash flow."
