THE Eurovision Song Contest is back tonight and fans will see 25 countries attempt to be crowned champion.
Although we haven’t had much luck in the competition in recent years, it’s not without trying.
Many acts have tried – and failed – to bring home the glory, but do you remember when these stars had a stab at taking part?
Katie attempted to represent the UK in 2005
Pregnant with son Harvey and wearing a pink latex catsuit, a bleach-blonde Katie tried her luck at representing the UK in 2005.
The former glamour model nearly came out on top after belting out track Not Just Anybody in the qualifiers, but in the end she just lost out to Javine Hylton.
We’re sure Katie didn’t feel bad for too long, though – as Javine only managed to come 22nd in the competition that year.

The actress performed A Message to Your Heart and ended up coming 10th place.

She took part in the Eurovision qualifiers in 2006 with her song Whisper to Me – but ended up coming fourth place.
It’s not all bad, though, as Kym ended up landing a huge part in ITV soap Coronation Street playing Michelle Connor until 2019.

The move tied in with their 10th anniversary and there was high hopes for the lads at the time.
But, even though they did a lot better than some, the track I Can was only enough to land them 10th place.

You might know Kate best for being an actress and impressionist, but Emily Atack‘s mum represented the UK in 1980.
She and sister Jane Robbins, as part of group Prima Donna, performed in the competition with song Love Enough For Two.
Despite the band coming in at a respectable third place, they split up shortly after their attempt at Eurovision glory.
