Nigella Lawson is swapping recipe cards for score cards, after confirming she is getting involved in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The TV cook - known for her sultry voice - will be reading out the voting results for Britain during the final on Saturday night.

Lawson confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Yes, it's true. Oui, c'est vrai. Ja, das ist wahr."

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the musical competition and will see Australia take part for the first time. Britain will be represented by pop duo Electro Velvet, who will perform the song Still In Love With You.
