The list of participants includes the winner of Eurovision 2015, Måns Zelmerlöw; host of Eurovision You Decide and comedian Mel Giedroyc, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Divina de Campo and English writer, actor, comedian Tim Vine, who will be joined of 10 other performers as they get a chance to recreate the magic of the Eurovision Song Contest from the safety of their own homes.
