Kylie Minogue is making plans to return to the spotlight after nearly a year off.
The pop babe was forced to pull out of her 'Showgirl' tour last year and take a break after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in May.
But plans for a new album and tour are now underway for the pint-sized pop star just under a year on.
A source is quoted on website sky.com as saying: "Kylie's feeling good. She's pleased she's got a clear head to start putting together a brand new show and album.
"Her hair is quite thin at the moment after the chemotherapy, and she's not sure it will grow back enough for the tour she's planning in January.
Speaking about the planned tour, the source added: "This time around, she wants the costumes to be less skimpy and she's thinking about new designs.
"She's thinking it would be great to have Priscilla Queen of the Desert-style wigs to entertain the crowds. She's really looking forward to having fun now."
"She wants to introduce new songs into the mix too."
