The music industry does odd things to your head - so when I saw Kim Wilde's new album was titled Here Come The Aliens, I feared yet another casualty of rock 'n' roll.

Convinced she saw a UFO in 2009, Kim - daughter of Sixties rocker Marty - believes aliens are among us. But she is so grounded, she admits being a mother and horticulturist is tougher than being a pop star. And she doesn't worry about looks - cosmetic surgery is a no-no.

It's been 37 years since Kids in America topped the charts, but Kim - back on tour - remains an artist worth Hanging On for.
