Tom Hardy's name, the film title and an October release date occupy the spaces that would normally find Venom's toothy-wide grin. Shooting has now wrapped on the Spider-Man spin-off and the filmmakers are deep in sure-to-be extensive post-production.

In recent years the United Kingdom hasn't fared so well in the Eurovision Song Contest, having finished in the bottom five several times in the past decade.

SuRie is no stranger to Eurovision - she was a backing singer for Belgian entry Blanche past year, as well as Loic Nottet in 2015.

The victor will be selected via the combination of a public televote, consisting of televoting and online voting, and the votes of a professional jury panel.

Real name Susanna Cork, she has featured in Eurovision before - as a backing dancer for Belgian act Loic Nottet in 2015, and musical director for another Belgian entrant in 2017.
