Wogan gives up Eurovision

BBC Radio 2 breakfast presenter Sir Terry Wogan is stepping down as commentator of the Eurovision Song Contest. He will be replaced by Graham Norton.

Terry says: "I've had 35 wonderful years commentating on the Eurovision for radio and television.

"From my first, in a small music-hall in Dublin, to my last, in the huge arena in Belgrade, it has been nothing but laughter and fun. The silly songs, the spectacle, the grandiose foolishness of it all.

Jay Hunt, Controller of BBC One, says: "Terry has enhanced viewer's enjoyment of Eurovision for many years and I would like to thank him for all of his work on the programmes.

"I am delighted that Graham Norton will now be bringing his wit to bear on this iconic music event."
