Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has admitted finding Republican Sarah Palin attractive during the recent US elections, even though he didn't share her political views.

“The Palin situation did my head in. It is a moral dilemma when you fancy someone but you don’t agree with anything they say,” Martin told the Sun newspaper.

“Do I want to kiss you or run away? I haven’t had that feeling since school.”

Despite his Martin frustration over Palin, Martin joked that there was another politician that he had his eye on.

“I would definitely sleep with [Conservative MP] Ann Widdecombe. I stand by that comment, even when it’s all over the internet.”

As previously reported on Gigwise, Martin publicly endorsed Democrat Barack Obama before the recent US elections.

Asked what he thought of Mr Obama's triumph, Martin replied: “The whole process and Barack Obama’s victory is the best thing that has happened in decades.

“It is difficult for everyone at the moment but there is a huge feeling of optimism in America. It has been a brilliant time to be here. There is a feeling that anything is possible. Obama’s ideas are great.”

Coldplay have announced details of a UK stadium tour which will take place next September.
