The book on Pan’s People, who once lit up Top of the Pops with their sexy dance routines, is now out in paperback.

"Our sexuality was very tongue-in-cheek – girls next door being a little bit sexy – and people loved that," one-time Pan's People dancer Dee Dee Wilde tells today’s Guardian.

"At the time, we were the most famous group of girls in Britain, the Spice Girls and Girls Aloud rolled into one, but we were working so much we didn't have time for boyfriends."

Wilde recalls being asked out by Bryan Ferry, "but I thought he was a bit arrogant. Rod Stewart was very sweet. He used to come round to my mum's in a big limo with his driver, Barnes. The neighbours' curtains would twitch frantically. Then Rod would leap out with his big hair, wearing a catsuit."

Pan's People - Our Story is published in paperback by Signum Books. Its original hardback edition was published in January to mark the 50th anniversary of Top of the Pops.
