KYLIE Minogue is backing Russell Grant after he danced through the pain to one of her hits.
Russell, 60, wore a red suit and horns to dance to Better The Devil You Know with partner Flavia Cacace — despite torn cartilage in his knee.
Kylie sent Russell a Twitter message after the show, asking: “How did it go?”
After he replied, she joked: “Shimmy!” Russell said: “I want to thank Kylie for making mine and Flavia’s day.”
The astrologer yesterday put off having keyhole surgery on his knee, fearing it would put him out of the show.
