Cheryl Baker, former member of the pop group Bucks Fizz who won the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest for the United Kingdom with Making Your Mind Up has been discussing the UK’s chances in the 2017 competition.

She has said that the UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union could stop other countries voting.

I think it could be detrimental.

They will think, well ‘you want to be on your own, fine, we won’t vote for you´-.

On the entries for Eurovision: You Decide, which is taking place in London on 27 January she says;

I have listened to all six songs and the singers are great. Let’s look for the positives. They are all good songs. They can sing, are all pretty and are good-looking.
