Vinnie Jones once called Kylie Minogue’s ex-fiancé a b***end to her face

Vinnie Jones reportedly wasn’t surprised by Kylie Minogue’s split from former fiancé Joshua Sasse.

The 56-year-old has admitted that he warned the pop star about her former flame, calling the actor a “b***end”.

Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O show on Tuesday, the actor explained that he once worked with Joshua on the musical fantasy comedy television series, Galavant.

The former footballer also revealed that Kylie’s sister Danni Minogue later made a point to thank him for sticking up for her sister.

Vinnie recalled how the singer would come visit her former beau on the set of the ABC show.

He revealed: ”She was lovely, but I thought, oh no – she's a rabbit in the headlights with this geezer, it's all bollocks.”

"All the crew and everybody were like, "Oh no, what is she doing?" She was a long way from home and needed someone with an arm round her," he added.

Kylie met Joshua while she was making a cameo on the now-axed Galavant.

The 53-year-old singer and the actor enjoyed a whirlwind romance and were engaged just six months after the first meeting.

Their engagement was announced in the Forthcoming Marriages section of The Daily Telegraph on 20 February 2016.

However, the following year the couple ended their relationship, with rumours swirling that the actor “grew too close to” Spanish actress Marta Milans.

Vinnie revealed that years later, Danni thanked him for getting involved in the pair’s relationship to warn her sister.

"Her sister come up to me after the show and thanked me from the family, because I'd told Kylie that he was a b***end," he said.

"She thanked me because I'd stuck up for Kylie.”

Kylie confirmed the split on Instagram, writing: “Thank you for all your love and support throughout this recent chapter of my life.

“Thank you now for your love and understanding with the news that Josh and I have decided to go our separate ways.

“We wish only the best for each other as we venture towards new horizons.”

Both parties soon moved on with Joshua marrying Louisa Ainsworth in Sydney in 2018, just one year after his engagement to Kylie ended.

Meanwhile, Kylie has been dating British GQ boss Paul Solomons since 2018.
