Molly Smitten-Downes has admitted that she’s nervous about going up against Austria’s Bearded Lady in tonight’s Eurovision Song Contest.

The UK entry is hoping to bring the trophy back to Blighty for the first time since 1997, however she has worries over Austria’s entry Conchita, who has been popular with fans ahead of the Eurovision final.

“She dresses incredibly. You see her from behind and then she turns around and has a beard. It is a bit of a shock,” she added.

Molly, who was relatively unknown before being announced as Great Britain’s 2014 contender, is also aware that gimmicky performances and novelty stage antics can help Eurovision acts secure votes.
