Does Brexit mean no more Eurovision for the UK?

Following the result of the EU referendum, the big question for Eurovision fans has been: can the UK still compete in the song contest?

Brexit has thrown up a lot of questions, among them the fate of the UK’s future in competing in TV singing contest, Eurovision.

But people can rest easy as there is hope – leaving Europe doesn’t mean no more Eurovision.

The official Eurovision Twitter account cleared it all up in one Tweet:

The BBC also confirmed its stance, saying: “We have every intention of continuing to participate in Eurovision.”

So, the UK will be at the contest next year in the Ukraine, after this year’s contest was won by that country’s performer Jamala, with her song, “1944” (which you can watch below).

But we’re not sure what this means for the voting…
