Jason Manford, Chelcee Grimes and Fleur East will present two one-off Eurovision shows on BBC next month. 

The two shows were commissioned by the BBC in February, but the three presenters were only revealed this morning by the broadcaster.

Eurovision Calling: Jason and Chelcee’s Ultimate Guide

Comedian Jason Manford and singer-songwriter Chelcee Grimes will present Eurovision Calling: Jason and Chelcee’s Ultimate Guide. 

Using a mix of fascinating archive footage and revealing interviews, the film will delve into the story of how the Eurovision Song Contest has become the world’s largest live music event, creating global superstars and leaving an impact on the lives of many.

Manford said: "As a glory-hunting latecomer to the Eurovision phenomena, I’m fascinated to speak to the people who create it, perform in it and most of all who love it!

"And discover why it means so much to so many people around the world and why is it considered the greatest show on Earth."

Sharing their own exclusive personal experiences of Eurovision as part of the show will be Sam Ryder - who came second in 2022’s contest - and Katrina Leskanich from Katrina and the Waves - the UK’s last Eurovision Song Contest winner from 1997.

Grimes, a Liverpudlian singer-songwriter who has written music for the likes of Kylie Minogue and Dua Lipa, will join forces with Manford to provide viewers with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Eurovision Song Contest preparations.

In addition to revealing some little-known facts about the event, Grimes will take audiences on a journey through Liverpool as the city prepares for Eurovision 2023.

The show will also visit Sweden to find out just how popular the Contest is there.

Grimes said: “Me and my mates have always loved Eurovision, I’ve been to many Eurovision parties over the years, so it’s boss to be able to make a documentary about it and meet some of the stars of the show, both in front of and behind the camera”.

Eurovision Calling: Jason and Chelcee’s Ultimate Guide will air on Monday, May 8 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Eurovision: Everyone’s A Winner

Musician Fleur East will present Eurovision: Everyone’s A Winner. 

Described by the BBC as a "Eurovision party like no other", this one-off special is a chart rundown of the twenty most successful Eurovision songs that didn’t win the official song contest.

It will chronicle the triumphs of past Eurovision Song Contest entrants who may not have won the iconic competition but have gone on to forge successful careers in the music industry.

East, also known for appearing on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and Saturday Night Takeaway, will be joined by celebrity Eurovision fans including Radio 1 DJ Dean McCullough, the UK’s 2018 Eurovision entrant SuRie, and ‘Dr Eurovision’ Paul Jordan who has a PhD in Eurovision studies.

Also joining in the fun are an array of Eurovision superfans including Owain Wyn Evans, Scott Mills, actress Claire Sweeney, singer Duncan James from former UK Eurovision entrant Blue, TV presenter Lauren Layfield and Tia Kofi from RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

East said: “I’m so excited to be hosting my own pre-Eurovision party in Liverpool, celebrating some of the songs that didn’t quite win, but still went on to become massive hits around the world. This is a top twenty countdown with a real difference, including tracks we all know and love, plus a few surprises.”

Eurovision: Everyone’s A Winner will air on Friday, May 12 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
