Kim Wilde is always on the lookout for aliens.

The 57-year-old pop star has revealed she spends a lot her time looking at the skies in search of extraterrestrial life, having previously admitted to being scared of being abducted.

Kim - who is set to release her first new music, titled 'Here Come The Aliens', since 1995 - said: ''I do still keep a very active look in the sky for things.

''I'm always looking up at night. And if I happen to be outside, I'll always just wait for a few moments to see if there's anything unusual before I go back in again.''

Despite this, Kim admitted to chuckling about some of the coverage about her earlier UFO-related comments.

The British star has learned to accept that it's something she'll never be able to escape or live down, even after she's gone.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It does make me grin when I think about the headlines, 'Eighties icon sees UFO in her back garden.'

''And I can just imagine when I pop my clogs, it's going to be up there amongst a few other descriptions of my life.''

Last month, Kim admitted she lives in fear of being abducted by aliens after seeing a UFO over her house in 2009.

The 'Kids in America' hitmaker explained: ''There were a couple of massive lights just above the clouds, going backwards and forwards in an extraordinary way.

''Quite a lot of people witnessed them, it made the local papers.''

Kim speculated that the aliens might be particularly interested in her because of her chart success.

She said: ''I said to my husband that maybe the captain was a big Kim Wilde fan and wanted to know where I live.

''I'm worried he's going to beam me up and I'll have to sing 'Kids in America' to him for the rest of my life.''
