KYLIE was in Canary Wharf this week, but don’t let it out of the bag.

Early-afternoon drinkers on West India Quay had a surprise on Monday when the pint-sized pop princess appeared right in front of them, alongside Gavin And Stacey stars Mathew Horne and James Corden.

The 40-year-old Aussie superstar, weighed down with shopping bags, filmed a sketch with Horne on the green bridge before being whisked away for another engagement.

But the action didn’t stop there as Corden thrilled his female fans by stripping off to his underwear as he stalked along the quayside, suffering for his art in a chilly wind.

The Wharf grabbed a few words with him, once he’d put some clothes back on, about why Kylie was starring in their new project.

He said: “We thought it would be funny. We thought it would be nice. She very kindly allowed us to put it in her schedule. She’s very excited too so it was great, really exciting.?

And Corden revealed he was about to start work on the last ever episode of award-winning series Gavin And Stacey, although rumours that Kylie would appear in that seem to be wide of the mark.

He said: “We’re about to start shooting the Christmas special, we start in two weeks. But, no, I don’t think we could get Kylie for both shows. She’s very much just in this sketch show.?

Monday’s filming was part of a six-part sketch show starring Horne and Corden called, er, Horne And Corden, due to be screened on BBC3 next spring so fans will have to wait and see whether any other big-names will be featured alongside Kylie.
