Next year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the UK, the BBC has confirmed.

A statement from BBC director general Tim Davie posted on Twitter read: “It is a matter of great regret that our colleagues and friends in Ukraine are not able to host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. Being asked to host the largest and most complex music competition in the world is a great privilege.

“The BBC is committed to making the event a true reflection of Ukrainian culture alongside showcasing the diversity of British music and creativity.

“The BBC will now begin the process to find a Host City to partner with us on delivering one of the most exciting events to come to the UK in 2023.”

Following the announcement, Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries tweeted: “This is Ukraine’s Eurovision and it’s an absolute privilege and honour for the UK to be supporting our friends”.
