SINGER Kate Bush has praised Theresa May as “won­der­ful” and said hav­ing a fe­male prime min­is­ter is “the best thing that’s hap­pened” in the UK for a long time.

The elu­sive star shared her views on Mrs May while discussing her song

which she pre­vi­ously de­scribed as be­ing about the “fear of women’s power”.

Asked by Cana­dian magazine about the topic of fear be­ing “stronger than ever” fol­low­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton’s re­cent plight in the US elec­tion, she opened up about the UK’s “sen­si­ble” fe­male prime min­is­ter.

Kate, 58, said: “I re­ally like her and think she’s won­der­ful. I think it’s the best thing that’s hap­pened to the UK in a long time.

“It is great to have a woman in charge of the coun­try. She’s sen­si­ble – that’s a good thing.” FOR­MER su­per­model Jodie Kidd has no re­grets about turn­ing down the chance to host

The 38-year-old mo­tor­ing fa­natic was asked to front the BBC show af­ter for­mer pre­sen­ter Jeremy Clark­son got the boot last year.

Blonde Jodie was top of the list to present the show, along­side Chris Evans, af­ter Ham­mond and May fol­lowed Clark­son out of the door.

But Jodie, who has also tried her hand as a rac­ing driver, turned down the job af­ter claim­ing she wanted to spend some time out of the lime­light.

She said: “I wouldn’t have wanted to get caught up in all that.

“They were talk­ing about three-year con­tracts with 50 shows.

“It just didn’t feel right.”
