A pensioner thought Kylie Minogue was a real-life waitress during filming for the Doctor Who Christmas special, reportsBBC News today.
Minogue plays the role of Titanic waitress Astrid in Voyage of the Damned, and while filming was taking place outside Morgan's hotel in Swansea an elderly customer confused the singer for a member of staff.
An eyewitness said: "It was absolutely comical. Kylie is an international star but obviously this old dear didn't know who she was.
"She said to Kylie: 'Excuse me, love, is it too late for a cup of tea?'
"Kylie saw the funny side and just laughed."
FOOTNOTE:The Sun reported today that Minogue had been comforting David Tennant over the death of his mother from cancer.
