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

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
