Kim Wilde, star of stage, small screen and tube train while pissed off her head on mulled wine has a Christmas album out. That’s it up there, as it happens. She’s also doing Christmas shows – Kim Wilde’s Christmas Party – at the O2 Academy Bristol today, the O2 Academy Birmingham tomorrow and the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday.
Now for her exclusive My First Time interview…
My first kiss… With a guy called David Sunry, who lived in the village next to me, we were thirteen. Pursed lips, no tongues and it meant the world to me at the time, because I adored that boy.
My first celebrity crush… Stephen Stills and David Bowie, Roy Wood and Elton John. I toured with David Bowie, and I’m pretty good mates with Roy Wood now and Elton john I’ve met several times, so it’s amazing really how things turned out.
My first porno… Flesh Gordon! At the cinema! I don’t think my mum realised; she probably thought it was an adventure movie. I certainly didn’t realise until half way though. And I left wondering why I had been taken there by the boy that had taken me there
My first pet… a lovely cat called Jason after Jason King, the actor who was very handsome.
My first record… A Gary Glitter record. I was a huge Gary Glitter fan. I can still like the records, can’t I?
My first love… This lovely boy called Armin Wittier with beautiful blond hair. And he loved me very much.
My first heartbreak… When I was in 6th form and I was going out with a boy and he chucked me. The first cut is the deepest, right? I just got that phone call. I don’t even know how I survived.
My first job… Part time jobs when I was living at home: cleaning at my piano teacher’s house; dis-budding carnations at a local nursery; I worked in a hospital once with my friend cleaning. My mum always brought us up to go out and make the coins.
My first drunken shame… That would be at a party I’d been taken to at New Year’s Eve in the middle of the countryside. I was sort of chatting to this boy, and as I got up, he went to help me and I fell over backwards and broke my collarbone on a concrete washing line post. And this guy took it upon himself to think that I was gagging for it, which I certainly was not, and I spent the rest of the night trying to fend him off with a broken collarbone.
My first illegal substance… I think it was at that party. I think that was what finally saw me off.
My first time… Some things are better kept to oneself.
