Blue to represent UK at Eurovision

Nineties boy band Blue will represent the UK at this year's Eurovision Song Contest in Germany, it was announced yesterday.

The four-piece will perform "I Can" at the event in Dusseldorf in May. It is the first time the UK has opted for an established act since 1997, when Katrina and The Waves won the competition with "Love Shine a Light".
