The raunchy film for Kim’s single, Say You Really Want Me, shows the blonde beauty wearing just a skimpy negligee and writhing on a bed with four hunky men. She pouts provocatively and runs a string of pearls sensually between her teeth. As the studs strip down to their boxer shorts curvy Kim sings: “I want you tonight”.

The producer of the Saturday ITV kids’ show Mike Forte said last night: “It’s far too naughty for the nine-year-olds who watch us.” Kim admitted that some scenes had to be cut from the finished video because they were too torrid.
