Richard Osman Will Be Our Spokesperson At Eurovision This Year

What an inspired choice.

Posted on

Every Eurovision final, each country gets to choose a spokesperson to announce how their country voted.

It's a thankless job. Germany's spokesperson from last year provoked this comment from Graham Norton: “Oh my goodness. It’s like a bit of corrugated shed has been blown off a roof and has hit her in her neck.”

This year we can announce Britain's spokesperson for Eurovision is... Richard Osman from Pointless.

His usual job is sitting in front of a laptop giving out facts and statistics, so this is a really good choice when you think about it.
