UNITED KINGDOM – With his calming voice and affable demeanour, he frequently directs dramatic election coverage and calms the country. Huw Edwards, a BBC News presenter and Welsh celebrity, has declared his readiness to host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023.
Huw, the BBC’s main news broadcast at 10 p.m. presenter who tucks many of us into bed, recently chimed in on the host city discussion. He backed a tweet that suggested Cardiff as the greatest choice, adding that “your presenter is standing by.”
He notably confessed to munching a croissant during BBC election coverage in a now-viral video. Some of you who have followed his incredible fitness journey in recent years may be surprised by this. The silver fox is said to box with a personal trainer in south London to keep in shape and camera-ready.
Back in May, the 60-year-old received praise for speaking out about his mental health, sparking a national dialogue about depression – and how it affects people of all ages and backgrounds. He was open about being bedridden during his most difficult spells. Huw is not presently mentioned as a betting favourite to host the programme. They were concocted many weeks ago and primarily rely on folks in Eurovision and/or entertainment circles.
Graham Norton, the BBC’s Eurovision commentator since 2009, is the overwhelming favourite and seems to be a lock for the job.
Davina McCall, Big Brother and Long Lost Family presenter, is presently second in the odds at Smarkets. She is the only contestant at the top of the standings who does not have an obvious Eurovision connection.
Other favourites include Rylan and Mel Giedroyc, who have both given semi-final analysis, as well as Married at First Sight: Afters presenter AJ Odudu, who gave the United Kingdom points at the most recent edition of the song contest.
