Former Eurovision winner Loreen, whose song Euphoria won the song contest in 2012, will represent Sweden again this year in Liverpool.

“They popped the question, the answer was ‘it’s not gonna happen'”, she said.

“It took me four weeks [to decide]. It was more like, ‘what can I say in this? Do I have anything to give again?
