Birmingham were backed into 6/4 favourites but have drifted slightly to second favourites in the market

Birmingham had been backed into 6/4 favourites just last week to host next year's Eurovision, but the market has changed again this morning.

The 'second city' has hosted the Commonwealth Games in August and it's seemingly been a successful one with positive press all around the competition.

This may well help their chances of hosting Eurovision next year due to their recent experience of hosting a major event.

Birmingham was the last UK city to host Eurovision back in 1998.

Graham Norton is still the 1/4 favourite to host the Eurovision Song Contest next year

Graham Norton is still the favourite to be the host of next year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Norton has been the BBC's main commentator for the event for the last 13 years after taking over from Sir Terry Wogan in 2009.

Rylan Clark-Neal is second in the market at 1/2 and has was heavily involved in the BBC's coverage of Eurovision last year.

Eurovision Grand Final Host or Co Host Odds Probability
Graham Norton 1/4 80.0%
Rylan Clark-Neal 1/2 66.7%
Ant and Dec 4/1 20.0%
Scott Mills 5/1 16.7%
Emma Willis 10/1 9.1%


Scott Mills also features in the betting market at 5/1 and he's been a predominant figure in the BBC's coverage of Eurovision in the last decade.

Graham Norton remains the heavy favourite to be a host or co-host at next year's Eurovision Song Contest with his 13 year spell as Commentator for the BBC taken into consideration in the betting odds!
