The Liberty Christmas Window reveal is an essential date in the diary, year after year. Officially kicking off Regent Street’s festive season, this year’s event was bigger than ever with a very special appearance by the wonderful Kylie Minogue. In support of ITV’s Text Santa, a portion of profits from her album sales on the day went to this fantastic cause. For those of you who couldn’t make it down, we asked Kylie to fill us in on Christmases past, present and Aussie...

How does it feel to have a Christmas album on sale at Liberty?It feels amazing! Firstly it’s very exciting to have the album out, the response has been fantastic. I keep going to It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - it’s a classic and as soon as you hear it it’s Christmas time. To be on sale at Liberty is pretty exciting, it’s very glamorous actually!

How would you describe your Celebritrees tree?It’s no great surprise it’s pink and sparkly! I would say British, pink and sparkly. I think the queen might be on there.

What are your favourite Christmas traditions?Decorating the tree is always fun! Even boring tasks around Christmas all link to the fun bit. I haven’t been to Australia for Christmas for a while, but when I go I’m just with my family. We have the same last minute scramble as probably everyone else! It’s more about the kids these days, eating too much then getting the Scrabble board out then going for a swim, which I know all you Brits find outrageous! I don’t think there are any Aussies on the beaches at Christmas, it’s all Brits. But it’s great, you should take advantage of it when you’re there. Growing up in Australia, you’re between school years at Christmas so it’s a very definite time, you’ve finished the year and you get that long summer break.

What do you want for Christmas this year?I don’t know! I’d like a wick trimmer. It’s really boring! A candle snuffer or a wick trimmer. One must always trim the wick of the candle! I’m just so excited because I knew I’d make a Christmas album eventually and it happened to be this year. My best present honestly would be to know that these songs are in people’s houses and cars and to know they’re part of someone’s Christmas Day.

Finally, have you been naughty or nice this year?What do you think? I’ve been very nice!
