The former X Factor star will lend Scott Mills a helping hand during the semi-finals

This Morning host Rylan Clark-Neal has joined the Eurovision 2018 line-up, and will lend a helping hand to Scott Mills during the semi-finals coverage.

Rylan, 29, appeared as a special guest on BBC2’s Eurovision: You Decide earlier this year and confessed he is ‘thrilled’ to be back for the event.

He said: ‘I can’t wait to join the Eurovision family and host the semi-finals alongside Scott for the UK this year. As a massive fan of Eurovision I’ve already cracked out my Union Jack Spice Girls jacket and am packed and primed and ready to take on Lisbon.’

Since finding fame on The X Factor in 2012, Rylan has gone on to host shows including The Xtra Factor, Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side and game show Babushka.

Graham Norton will return as host of the grand final, while former Great British Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc will be on hand to deliver the UK’s votes.

Mel said: ‘I’m gutted to be missing the semi-finals this year but I’m super excited to be announcing the UK’s televote result live from London on the big night.’

We can’t wait!
