Charity auction for Kylie's car

Pop star Kylie Minogue's personalised Lexus CT200h car is to be auctioned on Thursday to raise funds for a children's charity.

Proceeds of the sale will go to the NSPCC Helpline.

The car will go under the hammer during the NSPCC City of London Christmas dinner at London's Savoy Hotel.

The 43-year-old Spinning Around star said: "I am delighted to be donating my Lexus CT200h to the NSPCC for their City of London Christmas dinner, with all the proceeds going to their Helpline. I have been driving it throughout 2011 and I hope that the generous bidder gets as much enjoyment out of it as I have!"

The new owner of Minogue's black compact car will have to make sure a goodcar insurance policy is in place before hitting the road.
