Sexy Kim Wilde has finally found love – with her band’s keyboard player Jeff Hammer. They have become especially close on Kim’s wildly successful tour with Michael Jackson.
And Jeff, who previously played with Teardrop Explodes and Stray Cats, has let their secret slip by telling friends he stayed the night at Kim’s London flat, in St John’s Wood.
Kim admits that tall, dark men like Jeff turn her on and has talked candidly for the first time about love, but refused to comment about Jeff. She says: “Do you think I’m so stupid that I’d go around talking about it to all and sundry?”
But 26-year-old Kim, whoc is in the top ten with You Came, admits she still finds French actor Christopher Lambert “completely handsome” – even though he once said he didn’t fancy her.
“What a blow for womankind that was”, Kim says. “I do know the subtle art of making love.”
Kim has previously been linked with her sax player Gary Barnacle and Calvin Hayes of Johnny Hates Jazz.
