Girls Aloud are rumoured to be following in the footsteps of, erm, Englebert Humperdink… by heading to Eurovision as the UK’s representatives. Producers are allegedly hoping that Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts will reverse the country’s string of bad luck at the long-running international event – which will this year be held in Malmo, Sweden.
Rylan Clark has also been linked to the job, but obviously he’s too busy in the Celebrity Big Brother house to comment. According to Pop B*tch, the girls have recruited chart-topping producer and rapper will.i.am to star on their song – which will be heard by Scott Mills next week. The Radio 1 DJ has already told his listeners that he knows who’s representing our nation, but is not yet allowed to say who it is.
Humperdink competed for the UK last year, and Blue had a go in 2011. EntertainmentWise contacted a rep for comment who said the story is “false”. The oikotimes.com team is aware that BBC has already decided the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest representative and they will listen to the song next week.
