The musical duo chosen to perform at this year's Eurovision Song Contest have said they are proud to be representing the UK.

Electro Velvet - Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas - will perform Still In Love With You after being selected from hundreds of entries.

Alex (35) and Bianca (26) will fly the flag in Vienna on May 23 in front of an estimated 180 million TV viewers.

Bianca said: "I have never been to Austria before, and I can't wait to get out to Vienna and do my best, and I hope to make the UK proud."

A lack of UK success in recent years saw former shop assistant Molly Smitten-Downes placing a lowly 17th, Bonnie Tyler finishing 19th and crooner Engelbert Humperdinck placing second to last.
