Despite the fact that the BBC’s head of delegation Guy Freeman indicated they would use BBC Introducing again in 2015 to select an entry, this hasn’t stopped some ‘well-known’ faces in the United Kingdom throwing their name into the mix for next year. The first two to pledge their willingness to represent their nation are serial reality TV personality Lauren Harries and 80s pop star Sinitta, famous for hits such as “So Macho”.
Lauren Harries has said she had been working on a song during her stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2013, and Sinitta’s comments come before she takes to the stage at Pride in London, where Conchita Wurst is also in attendance. She also revealed that she was in the running to represent the United Kingdom in 1984 before her career kicked off.
British fans reading this are used to the routine by now; in recent years names such as Morrissey, Uniting Nations, HURTS, Jarvis Cocker, Geri Halliwell, Rylan and Jessie J have all been linked to Eurovision. Thankfully though, 2015 looks set to be a less rumour-filled year as the BBC continue their surprising but refreshing outlook on the contest from 2014 – and (hopefully) long gone are the days of faded stars being chosen for the country.
