Electro Velvet is the great UK hope for Eurovision 2015 but, if your reactions on Twitter are anything to go by, we don't have a hope in hell.

Upbeat electro-swing number "Still In Love With You" channels some of the fun "Bare Necessities" vibe Disney's The Jungle Book and could not be more catchy.

But while the original song has its enthusiastic supporters...

...the general verdict seems to be that the UK has simply "given up".

Electro Velvet consists of Mick Jagger impersonator Alex Larke and one-time The Voice contestant Bianca Nicholas. It seems many of you wish they had just stuck to the day job.

Austrian trans singer Conchita Wurst won last year's Eurovision with "Rise Like a Phoenix" meaning the 2015 contest will take place in Vienna.
