Leonardo Dicaprio - Bidder Wins Space Flight With Leonardo Dicaprio At Cannes Auction

One lucky bidder has won an out-of-this world experience to join LEONArDO DiCaprio onboard the Virgin Galactic voyage into orbit after laying down $1.5 million (£967,000) during an auction at the Cannes Film Festival.

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein put the ticket for the once-in-a-lifetime trip under the hammer at the AmfAr Cinema Against Aids charity dinner at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes on Thursday night (23May13).

The winning bidder will sit right next to DiCaprio on the first commercial flight into space.

A date for Richard Branson's expedition has not yet been set as the aircraft is still in the final stages of a safety test programme.

The identity of the wealthy 'spaceman' who won the auction item has not been revealed.

The AmfAr gala turned into a rare date night for singers Kylie Minogue and Ellie Goulding, who arrived with boyfriends Andres Velencoso and Jeremy Irvine.

Goulding, who performed at the fundraiser, ended weeks of speculation about her love life by cuddling the actor and posing with him for photos outside the bash, which was also attended by Janet Jackson, Sharon Stone, Milla Jovovich, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Goldie Hawn.
