Singer and actress SuRie has been chosen to represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision song contest.

She beat competition from five other entrants in a combined public and expert jury vote after a live performance of her track, Storm, at the BBC’s Eurovision: You Decide 2018 televised event in Brighton.

She said she would celebrate with “a bottle of something bubbly and a straw”, before performing Storm for a second time.

“I can’t believe this is happening, it’s absolutely amazing,” she said.

“It’s such an honour to have the opportunity to represent a country I’m very, very proud of and that I know I can do good things in Lisbon for, so thank you to everyone who voted and supported me. This is amazing.”

SuRie, real name Susanna Cork, has previous with the singing competition after previously performing as a backing dancer for Belgian act Loic Nottet in 2015, and as musical director for another Belgian entrant, Blanche, in 2017.
