Jedward considering representing Ireland again for Eurovision 2023

Jedward say they'd consider representing Ireland in the Eurovision again.

The Dublin pop duo also say they're excited about the competition being held not too far away from home.

Seven cities in the UK are currently hoping to host the competition after organisers decided it couldn't go ahead in Ukraine.

Kyiv's unable to host because of the war with Russia.

Belfast was going to throw its name in the hat, but it is out of the running to host the song contest.

However, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leeds are among the cities to have made the shortlist, while Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield are also on the list.

They will all now be assessed again to make sure the city is capable of hosting such a big event.
