Kylie Minogue is the latest celebrity to celebrate Australia's vote in favour of same-sex marriage.

The former Neighbours star tweeted: "#Australia #MarriagequalityLove is love, always was love, always will be love."

Support

Richard Coles, the Church of England priest who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, referenced the singer's character in the Australian soap.

Coles, who has a civil partner, tweeted: "Thanks Oz! I haven't felt like this since Charlene and Scott."

Olympic diver Tom Daley and Neil Patrick Harris, both in same-sex marriages, also tweeted their support.

"Congratulations to Australia and everyone that can now share their love EQUALLY!" wrote Daley.

Leo Varadkar, who became the fourth openly gay head of government when he was elected Taoiseach in June, congratulated the country.

In a non-binding survey, 61.6pc of Australian voters backed the proposal.
