Scott Mills to host BBC Eurovision coverage


Scott Mills is to be one of this year’s Eurovision commentators as the 68th song contest takes place in Malmö.

Scott will host the semi-final coverage or the BBC alongside Rylan, live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Over on Radio 2 and BBC Sounds, Richie Anderson will make his debut as the station’s commentator, normally hosted by Ken Bruce.

Scott says he had an opportunity to have a say in this year’s Eurovision choice, Olly Alexander from Years and Years.

He explained: “I think Olly Alexander is a world class performer, and I think that just shows you how things have changed in recent years, the fact that someone of that calibre who has so many hits and No1 albums, wants to compete at Eurovision, shows how far we’ve come.

“We are behind Olly all the way, he is brilliant and the song is really fun. I am hoping for good things.”
