Student bets on himself to date Kylie Minogue

A 21-year-old student stands to win hundreds of pounds if he can persuade pop princess Kylie Minogue to go on a date with him in 2004 [30-Dec-2003]

Brett Allen, from Canterbury, Kent, has bet 25 on himself achieving the feat over the next 12 months and was flattered to find that a bookmaker gave him "generous" odds of 100/1.

However, the student - who could have 2,500 to spend on his dream date if he wins - conceded that he had yet to hatch a detailed plan for meeting the Australian beauty.

"I am not a nutter and I will not follow her around everywhere but if the chance comes up to meet her then I will take it. But I won't use chat up lines as girls don't go for them," he said.

Bookmaker William Hill, who took the bet from Mr Allen, said he would have to spend a minimum of two hours on a date with the star in 2004 for them to pay out on the bet.
