In an interview with Estonian website Publik Delfi, James Blunt has said that he’d be willing to write a song for the UK and that he’s “waiting for them to call me”
James told the reporter:
“I guess the thing I’m saddest about is that… England never wins and I’m just waiting for them to call me because I’m here to fix this.”
When asked when James would take part, James replied:
“I think whenever the UK is ready to win Eurovision”
Aswell as talking about the UK, James talked about this years winning entry ‘Toy’ saying:
“I thought it was great. I genuinely thought it was exciting and different and full of character and was so relieved it won.”
