Pop sisters KYLIE and Dannii Minogue enjoy nothing better than playing SCRABBLE with controversial author Salman Rushdie.

The Australian siblings discovered they share their passion for the board game with THE SATANIC VERSES writer, and the unlikely trio love to get together to play matches of the word-making game.

An insider says, "Salman loves playing with Kylie and Dannii. He says the competition is rough, but that he wins because he plays 'streetwise' Scrabble.

"Apparently, Kylie is demonic at it."
