KYLIE Minogie might have celebrated her fiftieth birthday in London, but Jason Donovan spent his birthday weekend in Scotland - in a kilt. 
The Neighbours heartthrob decided to fly up from London to Glasgow to perform at a charity bash. 
The Too Many Broken Hearts hitmaker turned fifty on Friday and was a guest at Tartan and Tiaras at the city’s Doubletree Hilton the following day. 
Having already celebrated his former Neighbours co star Kylie’s much lauded fiftieth in London last weekend he was more than happy to have a change of scenery. 
For the occasion he was even given a kilt to wear by Heart radio drivetime presenter Paul Harper who had the pleasure of dressing him on the night. 
Paul said: “Jason said he loved celebrating his fiftieth birthday weekend with Scottish fans. I gave him a kilt to wear and he wasn't sure at first how to wear it. It told him I’d help him get dressed. I guess it’s every girl’s dream to dress Jason Donovan and I had the pleasure of doing exactly that. He asked me if he should wear underwear with it and I told him he always should if the kilt is hired - which it was.”
On the night Jason was met by hundreds of screams as he teased: “Does anyone want to see what I have under my kilt?”
He also sang a clutch of hits including Especially For You. 
And although Kylie wasn’t there he informed the crowd that his backing singer was called Kelly. 
The event now in its 10th year, raised money for Calum's Cabin, Home-Start Renfrewshire and Inverclyde and DEBRA.
