Pop diva and global superstar Kylie Minogue has been leaving onlookers spinning around with surprise after turning up at none other than the Trelowarren Estate near Mawgan.

Australian-born Kylie, 44, was spotted going for dinner in the New Yard Restaurant earlier this month and is believed to have been in the area for a number of days.

It is thought she may have been filming either on the estate or in the surrounding area, with one worker saying: “We’re not allowed to say anything for two months.”

Another said: “I think it might be all hush-hush. I’m not too sure how much I can say or not say.”

This has led to speculation that the estate has signed a confidentiality clause, often imposed to keep details of a project quiet until its official launch. One possibility is that the singer is filming a video to accompany a new single.

Her most recent single was Timebomb, which was released in May as part of her K25 celebrations commemorating 25 years in the music industry. Kylie has already revealed that she is working on a new LP, which she plans to release in 2013.

Those lucky enough to bump into the diminutive diva can’t get her out of their mind after their encounter. Facebook has been a frenzy of excitement as the news began to circle that a star was among them, with one person writing: “Casually riding my bike through Trelowarren and Kylie Minogue turns up for an evening meal.”

Security is likely to have been tight, however, with no one apparently able to snatch a photograph – leaving many thinking to themselves “I should be so lucky.”

There has also been no mention of Kylie’s Cornish adventure on her Twitter account or official website page. Kylie shot to fame in the long-running Australian soap opera Neighbours, becoming a household name when her character Charlene Mitchell married Scott Robinson played by Jason Donovan. They later became a real-life couple for a while and released the duet Especially For You. Since her early hits, which include the Locomotion and Hand on Your Heart, she has seen a career spanning three decades. In December last year her 2001 single Can't Get You Out Of My Head was named as the most-played song of the last ten years.
