Lucie Jones: I wasn't 'Brexit' girl at Eurovision
The singer said she’ll be catching up on sleep now.
Eurovision contestant Lucie Jones says she was relieved that she was not “Brexit girl” at the song contest.
The UK achieved its highest points haul – 111- in eight years for the former X Factor contestant’s performance of Never Give Up On You.
The singer, 26, told ITV show Lorraine that, after a gruelling few weeks, she was going to get some rest and eat what she wants.
“You can hear in my voice, I’m so tired,” Lucie told the show.
“Today is going to be about catching up (on my sleep) and eating junk food.”
She said of the Eurovision Song Contest, which was won by Portugal: “It was just the best experience. I had such a wonderful time.
What an incredible experience. Thank you to every person who's supported, voted, watched, tweeted... I can never tell you what it means. ♥️ https://t.co/5ZcV2AUAse— Lucie Jones (@luciejones1) May 14, 2017
“Nobody actually talked about Brexit there. It wasn’t a thing. I wasn’t Brexit girl, which was really nice.”
Lucie added: “It was a completely joyous, wonderful thing to do and I’m so happy that I went.”
She blamed nerves and lack of sleep for some contestants sounding out of tune.
“We were exhausted. It’s so relentless. Some people didn’t quite hit the notes they were hitting in rehearsals, which I thought was a real shame.”
