This weekend will see the nation - and the rest of Europe - will be tuning into this year’s Eurovision.

And we’re even more excited about it now that we know Nigella Lawson will be taking on a starring role.

Thankfully, however, she won’t be doing a Katie Price; the iconic chef is saving her singing voice for private shower time.

The 55-year-old will be delivering the voting results live from London on Saturday (May 23).

Nigella confirmed the exciting news on Twitter in no fewer than three languages, responding to a fan in English, French and German.

Asked if the rumours were true, she wrote: "Yes, it's true. Oui, c'est vrai. Ja, das ist wahr."


Meanwhile Electro Velvet will be heading to Austria to represent the UK in this year’s singing contest.

Here’s a taster of what you can expect from the duo:

We hope that’s enough to break the dreaded ‘nul points’ curse - but, being as the double act will be donning special LED costumes for their performance, we’re hoping they’ll be (ahem) lighting up the points board with plenty of big numbers for us.

Roll on Saturday, we say!
