The BBC have out of the blue confirmed that the United Kingdom’s six hopefuls will be revealed tomorrow on their Eurovision website, doing away with the traditional reveal on the Ken Bruce show on BBC Radio 2.
In a tweet sent out from the official BBC Eurovision account earlier this afternoon, the British national broadcaster confirmed that the songs vying to represent the UK in Lisbon would be revealed on Wednesday 24th January.
The tweet was posted alongside a teaser video from the show’s Swedish co-host and Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw, who was filmed listening to the entries through headphones. The singer describes some of the entries using descriptions such as “interesting”, “Ed Sheerany”, “very hooky” and “clubby” – all words that I’m sure could excite and terrify the long-suffering British Eurovision fans in equal measure!

Strong rumours and links to the competition would suggest that two of the participants are eclectic vocalist Rachel Clark and Britain’s Got Talent 2013 finalist Asanda who allegedly has some “exciting news” to tweet about tomorrow.
Eurovision: You Decide will be held at the Brighton Dome on February 7th with televoting deciding the British entry for Lisbon.
The acts will be posted to bbc.co.uk/eurovision tomorrow, and we will be on hand to bring #YOU the entries when they land!
