Bill Bailey is writing a song for next year’s ‘Eurovision Song Contest’.
The 55-year-old comedian initially said he would ‘be happy to throw [his] hat in the ring’ to pen a tune for next year’s singing competition, and he has now revealed he is putting pen to paper on a song to submit as a potential UK entry.
According to RadioTimes.com, he said: ‘Yes, do you know what? I was writing [a Eurovision song] today. This very day … because I just thought, why not? Come on, we’ve not been doing well lately.’
It comes after James Newman scored nul points at the song contest last month with his track Embers, and Bill – who delighted viewers as he won Strictly Come Dancing last year – thinks the UK need more fun in their lyrics.
He added: ‘It couldn’t have gone worse. We need to inject a bit of fun, I think.’
Bill – known for his musicianship and comedy skills – first shared his interest in writing a song last month on Twitter.
