Sound judgement

Eighties pop star Kim Wilde returned this year with a new album, Here Come The Aliens, and she told of a life-changing experience involving, well, aliens. Or at least, seeing unidentifiable lights in the sky in her garden in 2009.

She said: “I remember it was the day after Michael Jackson had died… I was playing his records all day. I got home about 10pm and these lights appeared. “I was in my back garden standing on the grass looking up wondering what was going on.

“It did make a big impact on me, I still look up to the sky expecting or hoping to see something. I’ve not seen anything as unusual as that since.”
