Engelbert: Eurovision is 'the big one'


The singer Engelbert Humperdinck has said that he was surprised to have been chosen to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan in May.

Speaking to the Today programme's Sarah Montague, the 75-year-old said he will be singing the song Love Will Set You Free every day until the contest so "I'll know it like the back of my hand".

"I feel the pressure", he said "but I'm proud of the fact that I was chosen to represent the country".

He said that he still does about a hundred concerts a year but this concert is "the big one".
