More news, no ads


The Eurovision Song Contest final kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) - and the UK's entry, 'Embers', has a West Berkshire connection, with parts of its music video having been filmed at Greenham Common.

The video, which features singer-songwriter James Newman performing the song at the former airbase, dropped two months ago.

Mr Newman had originally been picked as the UK's entry for the 2020 edition of the long-running contest.

However, the competition was called off that year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Both the video and song have only recently been unveiled.

The Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast live from Rotterdam on BBC One from 8pm on May 22.

Mr Newman has previously collaborated with Ed Sheeran and Calvin Harris, and is the brother of chart-topping artist John Newman.

He was reportedly happy with the choice of Greenham Common as a shooting location.

Can you spot the Common in the 'Embers' music video?
