Jason Donovan has said he was "unofficially" asked if he wanted to represent the UK in this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The singer and Strictly Come Dancing star told Heart FM: "Unofficially, I was asked this year to represent the UK at Eurovision. They actually came up to me and said would I be interested and I declined.

"Not because Eurovision is what it is, it's more about the fact that having just come off Strictly and feeling like I was under a bit of a microscope, I didn't really want to go through that experience again.

"Also, it's such a big audience and there's such an incredible pressure. You get once chance, it's like being an athlete, really. You have to start the blocks and then go. But it wasn't a tough decision for me."
