LONDON: A new pop romance was reported yesterday between Steve Strange of the Visage group and singer Kim Wilde, daughter of ’60s idol Marty Wilde.

“Our relationship is in its early days yet”, said the 22-year-old Strange. “We see each other as our careers permit.”

Kim (21) said: “We have been out a few times – just good friends, you could say.”

A friend of Strange’s was quoted by the Daily Express as saying: “Since meeting Kim he’s shining, happier and more content.”

For a dinner date in London, Strange wore hair lacquer and heavy mascara. Kim wore no makeup.
