Andy Abraham has more chance of scoring ‘nil point’ for Britain than he does of winning the Eurovision song contest, according to bookies.
The 2005 X Factor finalist was voted for by TV viewers to represent the UK in this year’s international singing competition, being held in Belgrade on May 24, with his song Even If.
But many Brits have already given up any chance of victory, according to Sky Bet.
The bookies are giving odds of 6/1 that Andy will manage a total of ‘nil point’ for his efforts and 6/4 that he will be placed last in the final. The odds of him winning the contest, on May 24, currently stand at 66/1.
Helen Jacob, entertainment manager at Sky Bet, said: “Ireland’s turkey is likely to stuff Andy Abraham in the final and we’ll be very lucky not to come last!”
Last year’s winners, Serbia, are 7/2 favourites to win Eurovision again this year.
This would make them the first consecutive winners since Ireland won three years a row between 1992 and 1994.
Last year, the UK finished 23rd out of 24 countries at the contest in Helsinki.
