The BRIT award winner, 35, was full of confidence as he belted out his track Embers while working the stage during the first dress rehearsal show at the Rotterdam Ahoy arena, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said of his chances: ‘Brit hopeful James Newman has gone from 125/1 to 200/1 to win the Eurovision Song Contest following some strong semi-final performances, meaning victory for the United Kingdom looks out of reach for another year.’ 

UK neighbour Ireland got eliminated from the competition on Tuesday. 

Singer Lesley Roy performed her entry – a song called Maps – in an elaborate spectacle involving a paper forest. But her hopes were ultimately dashed as she was knocked out of the running.
