Jordan favourite to be UK's Eurovision entry

Glamour model Jordan is odds-on favourite to win a place tonight as the UK’s Eurovision entry.

Glamour model Jordan is odds-on favourite to win a place tonight as the UK’s Eurovision entry.

Jordan – real name Katie Price – and four other acts will perform live on BBC1 show Making Your Mind Up.

The other contestants are former Eurovision hopeful Gina G, ex Popstars:The Rivals contestant Javine, Pop Idol reject Andy Scott-Lee and G4-style trio Tricolore.

The public will vote for their favourite, who will go on to represent the UK in the Ukraine on May 21.

And Jordan, who recently revealed she is five months pregnant by fiancé Peter Andre, is runaway favourite at odds of 10/11.

Ladbrokes spokesman Warren Lush said: “She may have her knockers but punters think Jordan will come out on top.

“She has hit the publicity trail and despite being better known for her vocal talent of shouting at photographers outside nightclubs has convinced punters she has what it takes. Now it is down to her performance on the night.”

Ladbrokes make Jordan 33/1 to win Eurovision overall.

If she wins tonight she will be nearly eight months pregnant when she performs in Kiev.

She said: “The British public have really supported me in the last couple of years and I feel I want to give something back.

“The only way I can do that is by representing the country. I’m not going to try to use my body, that’s the Jordan side. I’m going to be Katie Price.”

Tonight’s show will be hosted by Terry Wogan and Natasha Kaplinsky.

Each act will perform a song they have been perfecting for the past few weeks.
