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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
