Famous sisters and Australian pop royalty, Kylie and Dannii Minogue are among the celebrities who will be helping to bring to life a number of Bluey storybooks in a new YouTube series.

“It is a true privilege to work with the joyous brand that is Bluey,” commented Jasmine Dawson, svp of digital at BBC Studios. “She has captured hearts of all ages across the globe and in extending her story we have put that audience at the heart of everything. I am extremely proud of this original commission and it is a true ‘for real life’ moment.”
