WHY do we continue the hopeless charade of entering the Eurovision Song Contest? This year’s UK entry, My Last Breath, by singer/songwriter James Newman, (pictured) is a quality song, but it won’t make a jot of difference on the night.

We could put Beatles holograms or Adele on stage and still come last. When it comes to Eurovision, we’re the kid in the playground that nobody talks to. The voting is political and we don’t stand a chance, especially in these post-Brexit times.

Enjoy your night, James, but I’d start practising your “Nul points” shrug now if I was you.
