Eighties pop stars Kim Wilde and Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley have broken the record for performing the world’s highest gig.

The singers performed at 43,000 feet on board a British Airways Boeing 767 in aid of this year’s Comic Relief appeal. They were joined by 128 passengers on board the flight.

Wilde performed her hit Kids in America while Hadley sang the Spandau hit Gold.

Digitalspy reports Wilde as joking "I'm becoming an old hand at performing on public transport - in fact I'm getting a bit of a taste for it. So when British Airways asked me to play at 43,000 ft I simply couldn't resist! It was great fun and I'm proud to have been a part of it."

Hadley said: "I'm very excited to be in the Guinness Book of Records, it's quite an amazing feat to be part of. It's really great that British Airways has put this event on, which has raised thousands of pounds for Flying Start."

The record was previously held by James Blunt who had performed at 42,080 feet.
