Rumours to be put to rest
The past number of weeks have seen plenty of names being suggested as potential candidates for the forthcoming British national final.
With news of Samir Elshay being one of the songwriters for a bidding entry to Rachel Clark being named as the first national final competitor, names have continued to circulate in the lead up to tomorrow’s official announcement.
Eurovision: You Decide will take place on the 7 February and will air live from the 1974 host venue of the British Dome hosted by both Måns Zelmerlöw together with reoccurring host and BBC semi-final commentator, Mel Giedroyc.
The winner of the British national final will go on to compete in the grand final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in the host city of Lisbon.
