Some interesting background info here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Was_Born_to_Love_You_(song)

and this video clip that I'd not seen before:

Found that David directed the video:

I Was Born To Love You (David Mallet)
Filmed at: Limehouse Studios, 1985-04-02
http://www.meddows.com/info/clips.phtml

And finally as already pointed out the female lead in the video was actually Debbie Ash sister of the slightly more famous Leslie Ash:

If in doubt always check the internet movie database.

If you want to read more about what Debbie's been up to in recent years I'd recommend checking out the following news item:

vyep, it was her indeed.  I remember seeing her name on the credit sometime.  Just to be sure

wikipedia "Later she did modeling alongside her younger brother Jay.[3] She progressed into acting, appearing as a child thief in Melvyn Bragg's London Programme and the West End production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.[3] She appeared in a video for the band Queen and had a minor role in Grange Hill.

I'm the Invisible Nose.....!!  harsh.
