The Eurovision 2024 news do not stop from coming! Just moments ago, BBC announced that the Olly Alexander will represent the United Kingdom at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

Specifically, Olly revealed the news during the Grand Final of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing tonight (Saturday 16 December) to a delighted studio audience and to the millions of viewers watching at home.


Who we got to Olly Alexander?

There was an extensive speculation regarding the successor of Mae Muller in the representation of the United Kingdom. Less than a month ago and as we updated you, “The Sun UK” revealed that Olly Alexander was in advanced talks with BBC. Moreover, according to a source of “The Sun UK” :

It’s a dream come true for Olly. Things aren’t quite locked in but he is a favourite with bosses.

Olly has said for ages he wants to have a crack at it — and after teaming up with Danny for the song he thinks we have a great shot.

He is aware people say that no established act in their right mind would go on the show due to the UK’s track record but as far as he is concerned that’s just ­snobbery.

A potentially very successful team up

Olly Alexander has a powerful ally on his side for his Eurovision bid. It is said that Danny L Harle, Dua Lipa’s producer, has put together Olly Alexander’s bid. Danny is the brains behind Dua’s latest smash hit “Houdini” and will probably serve as the executive producer on her upcoming third studio album.

Who is Olly Alexander?

The 33 year-old Olly Alexander is a singer and actor from England. He is best known for his work as the lead singer of Years & Years, one of the UK’s most successful groups and as Ritchie Tozer in the Channel 4 drama series “It’s a Sin”. Alexander has been multi-nominee in the Brit Awards as well as several other awards within the United Kingdom.
