Kim Wilde cameo on Jo Brand comedy?

Kim Wilde asked to appear in Jo Brand's comedy

Kim Wilde has asked Jo Brand if she can appear on her BBC Four comedy Getting On.

The singer-turned-gardener was flattered to find out that Jo's put-upon nurse character is called Kim Wilde, and she asked Jo if she herself could put in an appearance on the NHS comedy.

Jo revealed: "I did this thing called Britain Sings Christmas. I had to sing Fairytale of New York with Diarmund Gavin and I met Kim on that and I said to her, 'I'm going to be doing a series and I'm going to be called Kim Wilde,' and she said, 'can I come and be in a bed?'"

The comedian went on: "So we've got her in mind, to slot her in in a Hitchcockian kind of way and not even mention it. She could sing Kids In America while we tranquillise her."

:: Getting On series two begins on BBC Four on October 26.

Whatever form this new situation takes, it will be empowering. You'll get help that was previously unavailable. If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
