Heavenly body is remote, I do fancy (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meteoroid

Here is my best explanation:

'heavenly body' is the definition.

(meteoroid is a kind of heavenly body)

'remote i do fancy' is the subsidiary indication.

'fancy' indicates anagramming the letters.

'remote'+'i'+'do'='remoteido'

'remoteido' with letters rearranged gives 'meteoroid'.

'is' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Another definition for meteoroid that I've seen is "heavenly body".)
