Dan recently shares his view on matters on Twitter, most recently commenting on Kim Wilde’s youthful appearance on his news show.

The singer was talking about her latest tour which was cancelled due to Covid, as she discussed her 80s career.

The former BBC Breakfast presenter penned: “Can’t believe she’s 62!”

Lunchtimelady added: “I thought the same! But then I have to realise that I’m not that much younger, although I think I’m 16!”

Perfwithsurf commented: “So glad I saw your interview on Channel 5. Your lovely smile and positivity is mighty impressive.”

Kim had seven Top Ten singles in the UK but never a number one, however her reworking of the Motown classic You Keep Me Hangin’ On” topped the US Billboard chart in 1986.

She went on to sell more than 30 million records and won hearts of the globe.

The singer is currently promoting her Greatest Hits Tour which was postponed due to coronavirus in 2020.

Kim also achieved a massive goal of hers when she got Boy George on her 2021 single Shine On.

The Kids In America hitmaker asked the Karma Chameleon hitmaker if he would lend his vocals to the track and it ended up on her 2021 LP album.

She told Best magazine: “We recorded a song in lockdown – that ended up in my greatest hits record.

“I wanted him to be on it, he’s such an icon!”
