Bucks Fizz singer Mike Nolan: 'Bonnie Tyler doesn't need Eurovision'

Singer Mike Nolan, who won the Eurovision Song Contest for the UK as part of Bucks Fizz in 1981, says he's "really surprised" by the choice of Bonnie Tyler this year.

"They picked Englebert last year, and he really failed miserably" he told ITV News.

"Bonnie Tyler's a real rock singer. She's very very successful in Europe, but Englebert was also successful. I don't know how she's going to do".

"No matter how good the song is, they could get the Queen to go on and sing for us - and they probably wouldn't give us the votes then".

"[Bonnie] doesn't need it to lift her career - she's already an established artist".
