Top girl singer Kim Wilde looks set to join motor-cycle ace Barry Sheene for a leading role in the million-pound movie Space Riders.
Bubbly Kim, in the charts at 23 with Love Blonde, has been offered the part as wife to a top rider.
Director Joe Massot says: “We are awaiting her decision, but I know she is very interested. It is just a question of re-scheduling her commitments.”
The film, which also stars Barry’s girlfriend Stephanie McLean, is based on the track champ’s hazardous lifestyle.
