Aussie breast cancer survivor, ex-Neighbours star, and pop princess Kylie Minogue has been comforting Doctor Who star David Tennant following the death of his mother from cancer.

According to The Sun, Kylie reassured the cult TV show's current Time Lord by patting him on the back and saying: "I know how you are feeling."

The pair had been on the set of the BBC series in Swansea, Wales, filming this year's Christmas special, Voyage Of The Damned in which Kylie appears as a waitress named Astrid.

Filming had been delayed a week to give Tennant time to attend his 67-year-old mum's funeral in Scotland.

A source on the set told The Sun that "David's mother's funeral was only a few days ago and he is understandably upset.

"He needed sympathy on his return to work — and Kylie gave him that."

Look, want a techie angle? There's a trailer of the Titantic-themed Christmas special on YouTube. ®
