Grant to compete in Eurovision?

Is Russell Grant planning a Eurovision assault?

Russell Grant has apparently been asked to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest.

The colourful astrologer was approached by officials from the island after grabbing their attention with his performances on this year's Strictly Come Dancing, The Sun reports.

A friend of Russell - who came eighth in the dance contest - told the newspaper: "He was thrilled but a bit perplexed to be asked to represent Malta as he has no link to the country. The only Maltesers he knows are in a box of chocolates. But he was really flattered.

"The premise would be Russell singing and then breaking off into a dance with Strictly partner Flavia (Cacace)."

But a source close to the roly poly star claimed he would be turning down the offer - because he wants to represent the UK.

Hayley Sanderson, one of the vocalists on BBC One show Strictly, is said to have penned a song for Russell to try his luck with.
