John Bishop’s brilliant suggestion on Brexit for Eurovision Song Contest: “I can’t sing in our language!” | Television and radio | Show biz & TV
John Bishop, Holly Willoughby and David Walliams join The Masked Dancer panel as guest panelists this season. The ITV series, a spin-off of The Masked Singer, will see secret celebrity dancers fighting for their place in the competition, while performing in elaborate costumes. In addition to the regular panel – Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan and newcomer Oti Mabuse – Ms. Willoughby, John and David will put their detective skills to the test.
During the announcement, comedian John, who has been announced as the star of the upcoming Doctor Who series, said: A long time.
“The show is crazy – but in a good way – and seeing the video wall with all the viewers and families watching at home gives it an extra spice.
“It was a really fun night and I really enjoyed it.”
As anticipation for the show, which is due to air tonight, grows, unearthed reports shed light on John’s personal opinions.
In 2017, the comedian made a “brilliant” suggestion for the Eurovision Song Contest.
He wrote on Twitter: “The Brexit negotiations should be that if they don’t give us a good deal, they can’t sing in our language at Eurovision.”
Many users seemed to like the idea.
One of them said, “Probably the best suggestion so far!
Another added: “Actually shows how important we were in Europe and how many concessions we had.
“Can you imagine the UK being told to sing in Dutch ?! No!”
A third joked: “They could still claim to sing in Australian.”
This year’s music competition saw Italy win in Rotterdam with the song “Zitti e Buoni”.
Måneskin frontman Damiano David shouted “Rock and roll never dies” as the band collected their glass microphone trophy.
It was another disappointing night for the UK, however, with James Newman’s Embers scoring zero points.
JUST IN: Sturgeon spent an exorbitant amount of taxpayer money on the Brexit affair
An angry user tweeted: “Shame on the wicked Euro-v countries … Jealous of our independence Brexit.”
Another said, “Let’s face it.
“Brexit had everything to do with UK independence. It was a middle finger for Eurovision.
“Brexit is clearly the cause. The Embers song was amazing and one of the best in years, so getting 0 points is a joke.
