UNITED KINGDOM – Former Eurovision star claims there is no point Britain taking part in the contest after Brexit as we will never win it now.
Clodagh Rodgers, who came joint fourth in 1971 with Jack In The Box, believes European countries will give us nul points, especially as the UK beat them to the Covid vaccine.
Britain has not won Eurovision since Katrina and the Waves entered with Love, Shine A Light in 1997.
But Clodagh, who had a string of hits in the 60s and 70s, fears that long wait for victory will go on indefinitely.
The 74-year-old said: “We’ll never win it again. Not after Brexit and the hoo-ha with the vaccine. They really hate us in Europe now. We won’t even get a point. I really don’t know why we do it any more. The UK competing in Eurovision is a waste of time.”
The former singer also claims Europe will be “p***ed off” at Britain’s success with the jab, while Brussels held back on the roll-out.
She added: “It’s like ‘how dare the UK do better than us’.”
Clodagh recalled the glory days of Britain doing well at Eurovision in the 60s and 70s, although she admitted the songs were not great.
She said: “They may have been a load of rubbish but they were catchy.”
