TV chiefs Wilde about Kim

Pop star Kim Wilde is to be the latest in a line of blonde beauties to help Chris Evans host The Big Breakfast.

She will co-present Channel 4’s early-morning programme next week while Gaby Roslin is away.

Previous guests who have stood in for Gaby include Ulrika Jonsson, Mandy Smith and model Lisa Butcher. Producers asked Kim to do a screen test – and they loved her.

Chris said: “The hardest part of this job is making it look easy and Kim’s a natural.”
