A BMG Poll has found that 70% of people are not planning on watching the Eurovision Song Contest this year.

Of those asked, 44% said they would definitely not watch it, while a quarter (26%) said they were unlikely to.

Only one in ten people (9%) said they would definitely tune into the annual spectacle on Saturday night, although 22% said they would likely watch it.

Of those asked, 18 to 34 year-olds were the most likely to watch the contest’s finale, with 43% saying they would either definitely watch it, or they likely would. Only a quarter (25%) of those aged over 35 gave the same responses.

Meanwhile, just one percent of people in the UK are pinning their hopes on British entry Lucie Jones to win the competition.

The most expected outcome (60%) is for the UK to finish in the bottom five, while 16% of people think the UK will come bottom of the table.

Whether Brexit will play a part, or whether the UK will receive the dreaded ‘nil points’ remains to be seen.
