Former S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens is emerging as one of the favourites to represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki.
Stevens, who has had mixed success with a solo career since S Club 7 disbanded, is hoping the British public will support her to be the voice and face of the United Kingdom at the 2007 contest.
She is said to be on the shortlist of artists approached to take part in this year’s Making Your Mind Up, where the UK’s entry will be selected by public phone vote. The list of performers will be officially announced on February 28.
A BBC insider said: “We never comment on speculation. All will be revealed on Wednesday.”
