Britain’s national pride has been so dented by continual Eurovision defeats that Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has rallied to the cause.
He has confirmed that he will write the UK’s song for next year’s competition and is now on the hunt for a suitable candidate to perform his entry.
It follows his television searches for stars of The Sound of Music and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
“People of Britain, I’m here to speak to you about a subject of considerable gravity – a subject that affects each and every one of us. I refer of course to our great nation’s continued failure in the Eurovision Song Contest,” he announced.
“The BBC have asked me to unite our kingdom in a quest to bring home the Eurovision crown once more. I have been asked to write the song, but where will I be unless one of you volunteer to sing it? So, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you could do for your country by contacting our website.”
The hunt for the best entrant will reportedly form the basis for a new BBC talent competition hosted by Graham Norton.
Poor old Terry Wogan has already jumped ship, no longer on board to commentate the big night either…
