Lean Kim scene

Motherhood may be pop star Kim Wilde’s most important occupation these days, but music is still high on the agenda. And the Codicote songstress is looking forward to freshening her image – criticised in national papers for being too mumsy – in time for her latest release. The 38-year-old, famous for her pouting blonde bombshell looks, plans to unveil a new album later this year and lose two stone to promote it.

She has enjoyed a break from the public eye since giving birth to son Harry seven months ago after wedding husband Hal in a whirlwind romance while singing in the stage version of Tommy.
