Rylan Clark shares hopes to represent UK at Eurovision

King Charles and Camilla preview Eurovision venue

The Eurovision Song Contest is the biggest musical event of the year, with comedian and talk show host Graham Norton commentating since 2009.

He will once again commentate the main show as well as present, but in the build-up, fans are going to be left in the more than capable hands of Rylan Clark and DJ Scott Mills.

They are also going to be hosting for the grand final on BBC Radio 2.

Rylan became an instant hit when he had viewers in hysterics during his stint on The X Factor, retaliating with confidence whenever music mogul Simon Cowell expressed he wasn’t his biggest fan.

Following his stint on the ITV competition, Rylan went into the Celebrity Big Brother house and won season 11.

He has become a regular face on British TV since then, including hosting duties on This Morning.

Thanks to his love of music and larger than life personality and popularity, fans have wanted to see Rylan represent the UK in Eurovision for years.

While he hasn’t been in the running so far, the 34-year-old would be ready and willing to be the UK’s entry.

Express.co.uk questioned if Rylan would be up for the challenge and if so, what would his performance look like.

He simply teased: “Yes and I’m not giving away my secrets.”

If Rylan was to take to the Eurovision stage, he would be far from the first of The X Factor’s alumni to do so.

During its 14-year stint, the singing competition has created a string of internationally popular artists.

In 2008, X Factor 2005 runner-up Andy Abraham represented the UK and came in 25th place.

Singer Ruth Lorenzo was Spain’s entry in 2014, Ireland was behind Jedward in 2011 and 2012 and UK entry Lucie Jones made her mark in 2017.

Brendan Murray was the face of Ireland in 2017 and the following year, Saaro Aalto was Finland’s representative.

The Eurovision Song Contest final takes place on Saturday, May 13, at 8pm on BBC One.
