The new-look Mel and Kim launched their Christmas single Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree with the full blessing of the original duo, yesterday. Comedian Mel Smith and sexy blonde pop star Kim Wilde have teamed up to make the record in aid of the charity Comic Relief. ‘The real Mel and Kim have been very supportive’, said Mel the comic.
But that didn’t stop heartthrobs Curiosity Killed The Cat making an appearance in the video as carol singers. The stars, along with all the technicians, gave their services absolutely free to raise money for Oxfam and Save the Children’s work in Sudan and Ethiopia and projects in Britain.
‘It would be great if it got to number one for Christmas’, said Kim.
