Rylan Clark-Neal is going to be all over the Eurovision Song Contest this year, and we cannot wait.

The 30-year-old has confirmed that not only will he co-commentate the semi-finals with Scott Mills, but he will be the spokesperson reading out the UKs voting results on the grand final.

AKA – the dream job.

Rylans new hosting gig was confirmed via the BBC Eurovision Twitter account, with Rylan saying: Hello Europe, this is Rylan calling, and I am so excited to announce that not only am I gonna be hosting the semi-finals alongside the lovely Scott Mills, but Im going to be flying straight back to London to announce the votes of the United Kingdom for the final.

And hes pretty stoked about the whole thing.

He continued: Ive waited my whole life to do this, and I cant believe its finally happening. Im excited for everything, the backdrop… is it gonna be the London skyline, is it gonna be the Dome? A picture of me? I dont know, it could be anything, but Im so excited to be doing it.

Scott Mills did it from 2012 until 2014, followed by Nigella Lawson in 2015, Richard Osman in 2016, Katrina Leskanich of Katrina & The Waves in 2017, and Mel Giedroyc last year.

Rylan will be over in Tel Aviv for the two semi-finals on 14 and 16 May, where he will commentate with Scott, while Graham Norton will, as always, provide commentary for the grand final on 18 May.

The UKs hopes lie in the hands of Michael Rice, who is representing the United Kingdom with his ballad Bigger Than Us.

And while many people have complained that leaving Europe (or trying to, anyway) will hurt the UKs chances, Michael doesnt think Brexit plays that big a part in the Eurovision voting.Read More – Source
