First Photoshopped bearded Nigella montages appear on Twitter within three hours of announcement.

With a single tweet, Nigella Lawson confirmed the unexpected news that she will be reading out the UK Eurovision voting results at this Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Nigella is best known in the UK for her highly successful cookery shows on BBC Television such as Nigella Express and Nigelissima and has something of a reputation for being able to give a certain erotic charge to even the most mundane of ingredients. It remains to be seen whether she can work the same magic when delivering lines such as “Former Yugoslav Repubic of Macedonia, six points.”

The news has created quite a mixed reaction amongst UK Eurovision fans on social media. Here is a sample of some that caught our eye:



My first Eurovision memory is watching the nervous Doireann Ní Bhriain present the 1981 contest from Dublin where of course Bucks Fizz won. So yes, I'm no spring chicken.
