The UK may have voted the whole of Europe ‘nil points’ last June, but the first real test of Europe’s response comes this Saturday with the Eurovision Song Contest.

By the time the results of the UK jury are announced, it will be too late to do anything about it, but we will at least have a reminder of happier times. Katrina Leskanich from Katrina And The Waves, the last UK winner 20 whole years ago, will deliver our points.

“I am honoured and delighted to be invited to be the spokesperson for the UK at Eurovision this year”, says Leskanich. “It makes it extra special as this year is the 20th anniversary of my win in 1997 with ‘Love Shine A Light'”.

Remember what hope we had 20 years ago? We were a nation that could win Eurovision, we had a new Prime Minister who for once wasn’t a Tory. Ah, such happy times. But, hey, our song is actually OK this year. There’s your new hope.
