Mae Muller has been announced as the UK’s entry for Eurovision 2023.

The London singer will head to Liverpool in May to compete with her track ‘I Wrote A Song’, an empowered break-up anthem.

She told the BBC of the honour: “To compete in such a massive music competition is simply brilliant.”

The 25-year-old explained that she was picked for the honour some two months ago, but has had to keep the huge secret under wraps.

“This is the most surreal thing, I’ve been listening to this song in my head, like top secret, for so long,” she said.

Muller explained that she had also received support from Sam Ryder, who is credited with turning around the UK’s Eurovision fortunes after finishing second last year.

That placing means the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will take place at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena from May 9-13, with the UK staging the contest on behalf of Ukraine after the country was deemed unable due to the ongoing invasion by Russia.

The hosts for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest were also recently announced, with Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham, Alesha Dixon, Ukrainian singer Julia Sanina and Graham Norton confirmed for presenting duties.

The former trio of stars will present both semi-finals (May 9, 11) with Norton joining for the grand final on Saturday, May 13.

More than 160million people are reportedly expected to tune in to watch the competition from around the world.
