UK Eurovision Song

Michael Rice, winner of the BBC talent show All Together Now last year, has been chosen to fly the flag for the UK at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The 21-year-old from Hartlepool, who was also on The X Factor in 2014, was picked in a TV viewers' vote on Friday.

He will now travel to Israel in May in the hope of impressing Eurovision fans with his song Bigger Than Us.

The UK has struggled in recent years - it has not won for 22 years and has not finished in the top 10 for a decade.

Rice won the £50,000 prize on All Together Now in March 2018, and used the money to take his family to Disneyland and to set up a shop selling ice cream and waffles.
