UNITED KINGDOM – BBC revealed presenter line-up for Eurovision 2018 with Rylan Clark-Neal joining Scott Mills for the semi-finals broadcast on BBC Four! Graham Norton will return for the Grand Final on BBC One joined by Mel Giedroyc who continues to be a part of the Eurovision family taking the reins as BBC Eurovision Spokesperson delivering the result of the UK vote live from London; while Ken Bruce will continue his long-running coverage over on BBC Radio 2.
Graham Norton says: “Eurovision is without doubt one of my favourite nights of the year – hugely entertaining, wildly unpredictable and often very funny. The UK have a belter this year with SuRie and Storm. It’s an anthemic floor filler that deserves to do really well, but that’s the beauty of Eurovision – anything can happen!”
Rylan Clark-Neal, Semi-Final Co-Commentator says: “After an amazing evening at Eurovision: You decide I’m absolutely thrilled to be saying I can’t wait to join the Eurovision family and host the semi-finals alongside Scott for the UK this year. As a massive fan of Eurovision I’ve already cracked out my Union Jack spice girl jacket and am packed and primed and ready to take on Lisbon. SuRie was great this year and I can’t wait to watch her represent us.”
Scott Mills, Semi-Final Co-Commentator says: “Eurovision is always the highlight of my year and I am truly excited that I’ll be presenting with fellow Eurovision fan, Rylan. Eurovision is the most wonderful spectacle and I’m looking forward to all the weird and wonderful performances that the contest always brings. Rylan and I will be live from Lisbon revealing who the finalists will be as well as cheering on the UK entry SuRie.”
Mel Giedroyc, UK Spokesperson says: “I am over the moon to be the UK spokesperson for this year’s Eurovision Grand Final on BBC One! I’m gutted to be missing the semi-finals this year but I’m super excited to be announcing the UK’s televote result live from London on the big night!”
Ken Bruce, Radio 2 Commentator says: “I’m delighted to be fronting my 31st Eurovision for BBC Radio 2, and look forward to presenting my radio coverage from a sun-drenched Portuguese cabana, but more likely two square feet of airless garden shed. That’s showbiz though!”
