The BBC have announced that Sir Terry Wogan will once again be hosting Making Your Mind Up, the show that will decide the United Kingdom's 2007 Eurovision Song contest entry. He will be joined this year by Fearne Cotton who is promoted from the special 'expert' panel.
Fearne Cotton replaces Natasha Kaplinsky as the co-host of the show. She comes fresh from her role as 'behind the scenes' interviewer/reporter at the Brits Awards, one of the biggest music shows of the year in the United Kingdom. She is a former host of the Top of thepops music show andwas also a panelist on the United Kingdom's national final last year. The move emphasises the BBC's desire to make this year's final more attractive to the teenage and young adult audience.
As reported earlier by esctoday.com, the first two participant names for the show are almost certain to beBrian Harvey and Liz McClarnon (6/1 and 6/4 to win according to William Hill). The final list of candidates will be revealed on Wednesday at the Making Your Mind Up press launch. We also hope that the names of this year's panelists will be made available. Of course, esctoday.com will be present to bring you all of the news surrounding the United Kingdom.
