Joe Woolford , 21 from Ruthin will represent the UK in Sweden in May along with 20-year-old Jake Shakeshaft from Stoke on Trent.

Having gone head to head on The Voice UK in 2015, the pair teamed up to sing on behalf of the nation as Joe and Jake.

On The Voice, Woolford was chosen to be part of will.i.am's team but lost out during the battle rounds. He has since gone on to support The Vamps on their 2015 tour.

This doesn't happen where I'm from. It's a little place in Wales.

We hit it off straight away on The Voice and we really did become good friends. It just made perfect sense to work as a duo

– Joe Woolford

It's 19 years since the UK last won the contest which is now the biggest singing competition in the world with an audience of 200 million people.
