EUROVISION writer Karl Broderick is hopeful that one of his songs could prove to be a hit for pop princess Britney Spears.

The panto veteran (40) has been contacted by the chart-topper’s songwriting team, who, after hearing one of his songs, are said to be impressed with his writing abilities.

Spears – who split with fiancé Jason Trawick this month – is planning a major pop comeback this year.

And Karl, husband of TV3 presenter Alan Hughes, may yet get to play a part in it.

He sent the acoustic ballad to a top music insider named William ‘Junebug’ Lee – and says he was thrilled to get a positive email back.

“I hadn’t checked my emails this week and I was going through them and I had one from William saying that he liked it.

“I had been successful in my submission, meaning he was going to send it through to Britney and her team to let them listen to it.”
