Cardiff singer Lucie Jones says it's "completely overwhelming" to be representing the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

The X Factor finalist, from Pentyrch, will perform her song "Never Give Up On You" at the contest in Kiev, Ukraine.

"It's completely overwhelming, it's unfathomable - what I'm currently doing is amazing", Lucie told Wales at Six.

You know the song is really good, and I'm trying to concentrate on going, singing Never Give Up On You, having a wonderful time and not thinking about the 200 million people who are tuning in at home, because it's crazy!

Lucie, who is currently starring in in Rent! The Musical at the Wales Millennium Centre, says it's great to be home.

I'm staying at my Mum and Dad's house, which is wonderful, because I had loads of washing that needed doing! But no honestly it's so nice, I love performing in Cardiff, it's such... there's just nowhere else like it for me.
