The BBC have confirmed their full line-up for Eurovision 2021. Graham Norton will return as commentator for his 12th Eurovision grand final that will be broadcast live on BBC One, whilst Ken Bruce will continue with his coverage of the contest on BBC Radio 2.

"I’m so excited for Eurovision to return, after the past year we’ve had it’s exactly the kind of joy the world needs.

"Radio 2 is getting right behind Eurovision 2021 with shows galore to delight all the fans. We’re all so delighted the competition is back this year. On the night I’ll be presenting the live show from my hot seat at Wogan House – bringing listeners all the entries, all the drama and, of course, the ultimate winner! Will it be the UK’s year to finally win again? I can’t wait to find out!"

For the two semi finals, we see the return of Scott Mills and Rylan Clark-Neal as commentators, but this year, they will not be commentating as a duo, and instead, will be part of a trio. Singer-Songwriter and presenter Chelcee Grimes will be joining Scott and Rylan for the semi finals which will be broadcast live on BBC Four. They will all be providing their commentary from London.

"Eurovision week is my favourite of the year and I cannot wait for the biggest entertainment show on the planet to return! Although we won’t be in Rotterdam ourselves, Rylan, Chelcee and I will definitely make sure we’re still throwing the ultimate can’t miss celebration for this year’s semi-finals."

Scott Mills

"There was a big Eurovision shaped hole in my life last year, so I am super excited to see what everyone brings to the table for 2021 – it’s the best time of the year! I am looking forward to being reunited with Scott for the semi-finals and to welcome Chelcee to the team! Plus ‘Embers’ is an absolute tune – I can’t wait!"

Rylan Clark-Neal

"I am super excited to be joining the Eurovision family, I can’t wait to host the semi-finals alongside Scott and Rylan, it’s going to be awesome. I have always been a fan of Eurovision, and I can’t wait to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to seeing all the weird and wonderful performances, as well as cheering on my mate James who is waving the flag for the UK! James and I have written together for a previous Eurovision winner and we've also penned some songs for the Romanian entrant so he is the best person for the job. JAMES TO WIN!"
