AMANDA Holden looked incredible as she gave Ginger Spice a run for her money wile posing in the iconic Union Jack dress ahead of tonight’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The 50-year-old, who will deliver the results of the UK jury’s vote live from London, showed off her endless legs in the daring mini – in a nod to Geri Horner.
Sharing the shot, she wrote: “Looking forward to making "un point" or two at #Eurovision tomorrow ❤️ @christianvermaak.”
Speaking previously about landing the coveted job, in-demand Amanda said: “What an honour. I’m utterly thrilled. It’s an ambition ticked after 45 years of watching it.”
Tonight the hopes of the UK will be pinned on singer-songwriter James Newman, brother of pop star John Newman.
James has proved himself as a top songwriter, penning tunes for Little Mix and Ed Sheeran. But he will have to really impress with his upbeat entry Embers if he wants to triumph — or avoid the dreaded nul points.
His odds of 100-1 are not that inspiring — and he will have to overcome favourites Italy, France and Malta.
It has been 24 years since the UK last won, when Katrina And The Waves took the 1997 trophy with Love Shine A Light.
Eurovision is the world’s most-watched non-sporting event, with 182million tuning into the 2019 show, including 8million Brits.
The majority of this year’s performers are the same as those who had been due to compete in 2020, when the competition was cancelled for the first time in its 65-year history.
All acts had to submit brand new songs, but at least they will get to perform them in front of 3,500 cheering fans at the Ahoy arena in Rotterdam — albeit with booze banned — as the contest is one of the Dutch government’s coronavirus test events.
