Kim lipsynchs to ‘Schoolgirl’ and ‘The touch’ on stage before a live studio audience, backed by a three piece band. Before her performance, she is interviewed briefly by presenter Adam Curry.

Once voted runner up for the most beautiful woman in England and now next to me on stage. How are you doing Kim?
Hi, very well thank you.

It was about a year ago since you were last in the Countdown studio, you were singing ‘The Touch’. What’s been happening since then?
Oh… I’m doing ‘The Touch’ again, yeah (laughs). I’ve been making my new album and working and writing and various other… pursuits.

And of course your dad Marty and your brother Ricky have always been helping you out. How’s mom doing?
My ma? She’s very well, yeah. She’s got a bit of a back problem.

Back problem? Not serious I hope?
No, not serious.

Tell us about Ricky, he got hitched?
Yeah, Rick got hitched, he got married and then he’s having a baby in July.

His wife’s having a baby in July…
His wife is having a baby in July, yeah…

How about yourself. Any interesting men in your life?
Not at the moment.

You’re sure? (laughs)
Yeah, absolutely sure! (laughs)

Seriously, what will you be doing in the coming months? You were working with Reinhold Heil, I believe, who did most of Nena’s stuff. How was that working out?
It was great. I did two tracks with Reinhold and Ricky and now I’m going to finish the album with Ricky and myself and my band, so. Reinhold is back in Germany, producing Rosa, I think.

And after that, planning on going Stateside maybe?
Yeah, we’re gonna do some gigs in October and November.
