Britain’s Daily Mail has claimed that washed-up child star Bonnie Langford will sing for Britain at Eurovision 2013. Ephraim Hardcastle, a columnist with a tendency to break this kind of hard-hitting news, makes the claim in this morning’s edition.
Naturally we need to take this with a pinch of salt. You may recall that the Daily Mail, a leading tabloid, has gotten plenty of things wrong in the past. Like when they claimed that a Tamil hunger striker had sustained himself on hamburger meat. Oopsey.
Langford first made a name for herself in the 1970s when she appeared in TV programs like Doctor Who. She went on to star in musicals like Peter Pan, Cats and Chicago. In 2006 she competed on Dancing on Ice—a well-known graveyard for washed-up slebs—and finished third.
Bonnie’s personal web site is currently getting a revamp as you can see in the screen grab below. Perhaps she is re-designing it to highlight her upcoming gig as Eurovision starlet?
UPDATE: Speaking to the Times, Bonnie Langford’s agent has denied the rumours. “If she is, she and I have absolutely no idea about it,” he said.
