Yesterday, the Swedish winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 and presenter of the United Kingdom’s 2018 Eurovision selection, Måns Zelmerlöw, began filming for his new role in Brighton.
During his first visit to the Eurovision: You Decide host seaside resort-town of Brighton, Måns Zelmerlöw revealed that he had begun working with the British national broadcaster, BBC, for the first shoots of the United Kingdom’s upcoming national final.
Brighton previously hosted the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1974, which saw one of the most iconic winners of the competition throughout its years with Sweden’s ABBA and their entry Waterloo.
Posting on his Facebook page, Zelmerlöw wrote:
Shooting #eurovisionyoudecide stuff with @bbc in Brighton today. My first visit and its beautiful! Only one naked person on the nudist beach though. Might be because it’s JANUARY.
Eurovision: You Decide next month
Måns will present Eurovision: You Decide next month on the 7 February, together with fellow host and BBC semi-final commentator Mel Giedroyc.
The 6 bidding acts are expected to be unveiled later this month, with 1 name already being reported earlier today as the first potential act for the competition: Rachel Clark with the song Crazy, allegedly written by Samir Elshay.
The winner will be selected via the combination of a public televote, consisting of televoting and online voting, and the votes of a professional jury panel. As in 2017, the show will be broadcast live on BBC 2.
