Eighties pop sensation Kim Wilde says she is living in fear of an alien abduction after having encounters with UFOs in her back garden.
She told Attitude magazine: “There were a couple of massive lights just above the clouds, going backwards and forwards in an extraordinary way. Quite a lot of people witnessed them, it made the local papers.”
I said to my husband that maybe the captain was a big Kim Wilde fan and wanted to know where I live.”
Maybe Kim. Who knows? (Kids In America is a banger, in fairness).
I’m worried he’s going to beam me up and I’ll have to sing Kids in America to him for the rest of my life. I’m worried they’re going to come back and take me away.”
Well, hopefully not, anyway. (Daily Mail)
