Alesha Dixon, Graham Norton and Hannah Waddingham have been confirmed to be hosting Eurovision 2023 Grand Final in the UK.

Also joining the popular British and Irish TV personalities is Ukrainian singer, composer and Hardkiss band frontwoman Julia Sanina.

May 13th will see TV star Alesha, chat show host Graham, Emmy-winning actress Hannah and singer Julia descend on Liverpool to host the Grand Final, where the next Eurovision champion will be crowned.

And as well as hosting, Graham will take turns with comedian Mel Giedroyc in the commentary box so audiences watching from home can be treated to his thoughts on the acts the same as every other year,

That’s not all: for the first time, both Eurovision semi-finals will be aired live on BBC One and iPlayer, with commentary by the legendary Rylan and Scott Mills.

Ukrainian broadcaster Timur Miroshnychenko, who went viral last year for performing his commentary on the competition from an underground bunker as Russia continued its invasion of the country, will act as the Eurovision Correspondent in Liverpool.

Kate Phillips, BBC’s Director of Unscripted, said the broadcaster was ‘thrilled’ to offer such a line-up.

‘The BBC is thrilled to have such a talented line-up bringing the Eurovision Song Contest from Liverpool – on behalf of Ukraine – to the world,’ she said in a statement.

‘One thing that truly unites us all is music, and we’re proud to have a team – who are well accustomed to the worlds of music, performing and live broadcasting – as part of our Eurovision presenting family.

‘It will be a remarkable moment for the BBC to deliver two huge pinnacles in this year’s broadcasting calendar, the King’s Coronation and Eurovision, within the same week.’
