Cheryl Baker backs Mae Muller's Eurovision bid

The UK's Eurovision Song Contest entrant, Mae Muller, has received a seal of approval from Cheryl Baker, who won one of the UK's five victories in the competition in 1981 as part of Bucks Fizz. As the contest returns to the UK for the first time since 1998, Baker believes that Muller's song "I Wrote A Song" has the potential to bring home the trophy.

In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Baker revealed that the song has grown on her, admitting that she was unsure if it was strong enough at first, but found herself drawn in by its catchy hook and memorable "lalala" refrain. Baker has listened to all the Eurovision songs and believes that Muller is up there with the best, though she acknowledges that there is tough competition this year.

Baker, who has become a long-time commentator and expert on Eurovision since her Bucks Fizz days, also reflected on her experience in the competition, recalling the group's iconic performance of "Making Your Mind Up" in 1981, which saw the male members of the band rip off the skirts of their female bandmates.

The tradition of hosting Eurovision in the previous year's winning country has been disrupted due to ongoing conflicts, and the 2023 event will be held in Liverpool instead of Ukraine. Ukrainian broadcaster Timur Miroshnychenko will be present as part of the presenting team in honor of the country's win last year.

In conclusion, the Eurovision Song Contest's Grand Finale will be broadcast on BBC One on May 18, and Cheryl Baker is confident that Mae Muller and "I Wrote A Song" will bring home a strong result for the UK, promising that they won't be "nil points in the bottom three or whatever."
