The BBC has revealed details of their wall-to-wall coverage of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, as the broadcaster gears up to host the competition in Liverpool.
With the contest’s rehearsals less than two weeks away from beginning, a press event has been held in this year’s host city, Liverpool, where the British broadcaster has outlined the changes to its scheduled programming to promote the contest, with a number of its flagship programmes broadcasting live from the city during the two week rehearsal period.
The British broadcaster’s morning news programme BBC Breakfast, and its evening magazine show The One Show, will both be broadcast live from Liverpool during the first two weeks of May, while BBC Radio 2 will become the “home of Eurovision”, building up to the contest and broadcasting special programming about the contest’s history and its Liverpool edition.
It has also been revealed that Rylan Clark and Scott Mills will take over from the recently departing Ken Bruce for live commentary of the final, with Paddy O’Connell returning to Eurovision commentary for the first time since 2010 for the semi-finals on the station.
There will also be a number of special Eurovision editions of many popular BBC programmes, such as Eastenders or Bargain Hunt, to further celebrate the UK’s hosting of the contest.
