Saucy Kim Wilde is about to shock TV viewers with a sizzling version of Elvis’s One Night Of Sin – set in a bordello. Kim, 26, will sing the raunchy song in a tribute to Elvis on August 14 to mark the 10th anniversary of his death. When Elvis released the original version more than 25 years ago it was banned by radio stations throughout America.
And last night Kim learned that the steamy video of her single Say You Really Want Me – already banned from children’s TV show Get Fresh – has been rejected by TV chiefs in America for being too near the knuckle. She hit back: “I did not really think people would take a video like this so seriously. I’m not out to corrupt anyone.”
