Eighties legend Kim Wilde has become an internet sensation after a video of her serenading train passengers with two classic hits was posted on YouTube.

The pop singer, 52, was filmed wearing sparkly reindeer antlers and singing Kids in America and Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree as her brother Ricky Wilde accompanied her on the acoustic guitar.

According to The Sun, the merry duo was heading home after the Magic FM Christmas party on Thursday.

The Daily Mail reports that the pair was on the train from London King's Cross, approaching Potters Bar in Hertfordshire on a First Capital Connect service.

Katherine Eames, an actress who posted the video on YouTube, said: 'After a truly rubbish day, I got on the train home and couldn't get a seat. A man pulled out his guitar. "Oh here we go," I thought.

'"Hang on a minute, I know that voice." It really was Kim Wilde. This totally made my day. Thank you. She is an absolute legend. Merry Christmas everyone.'

Kim took to Twitter and wrote: 'truly,i am overwhelmed and confused at such a huge reaction to my night out on the tiles.Making me giggle a LOT: )'
