Rumour: Charlotte Church to represent the UK?

25 August 2011 at 17:04 CEST

A few days ago we speculated that the Spice Girls may reunite to represent the United Kingdom at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku.

However, they aren't the first name to be mentioned by the media, with none other than child classical star come mega popstar Charlotte Church also being rumoured to possibly represent the UK next year in Azerbaijan.

Charlotte Church, a welsh singer, shot to fame as a young child where she released mainly classical music. Since then she has grown into an adult pop-star, releasing singles like Crazy Chick and Call My Name, giving her more success.

In all Charlotte has sold about 10 million records worldwide, including around 5 million in the United States making her a star of truly global proportions.

According to an article the Daily Star published just after the 2011 contest in May, the BBC is set to use the same selection format as this year when Blue were chosen internally to represent the UK in Düsseldorf. They reached a modest 11th place and helped to provide some of the best viewing figures ever for the contest in the UK.

In addition to Charotte Church, there was speculation back in May that the BBC have also approached JLS, The Saturdays, Pixie Lott and Katherine Jenkins to take part in Europe's favourite TV show next year.
