Just over a day until the UK announcement and we've had a sudden flurry of speculation. First unwashed X Factorist Luke Friend was chucked into the fray, merely by having a couple of hearts in his video. Then ace beatboxer Grace Savage caused a 24 hour stir by cryptically Tweeting about Eurovision, before the traditional Alexandra Burke and Rebecca Fergusson got snuck into the mix by Ken Bruce and Radio Times respectively. We hear Geri Halliwell has been waiting patiently by her phone ready to make a denial...
But this morning's rumour is a whole different kettle of fish. The source that first broke Molly's involvement last year suddenly tweeted that we'd be sending the Wonder Villains to Vienna. And while this is initially unlikely, it does kind of fit in with what the man from the Beeb said about it being a starkly different choice from last year.
We have to stress that this has in no way been confirmed yet, and it might be just another brief moment of fanciful speculation. But I for one would welcome a little bit of 90s twee pop in the competition. For a start it would be the most up-to-date thing we've sent in years, and for another it might mean that Tallulah Gosh might reform and all us indie anoraks can go into fits of happy joy.
Sadly, as we now know, it was not to be. Bah! But I've just been having a little FB chat with the band and it appears that, much like Laura Kidd, they have no idea where these rumours may have come from! How the heck did that start then?!!
