The comedy sketch saw the singer, 54 arrive at Button House to see if it was suitable a concert venue, but when left alone with the ghosts, she tells them all to ‘shut up’ letting on that she can actually see and hear them.
Revealing how she came to have the secret power; she tells the Ghosts: ‘You know the rollerskating montage in the Spinning Around video? I had a fall, banged my head, and now I can see Ghosts.’
As the sketch continues, the Ghosts refuse to believe that she is infact the real Kylie, so she calls up her old flame Jason, to convince them that she really is the pint-sized popstar.
