The Telegraph

Englebert Humperdinck is seriously deluded about his imminent appearance at the Eurovision song quest:

But despite his reputation as the “King of Romance”, Humperdinck says he would be appalled if any female fans threw underwear at him, an occurrence which used to be commonplace at his shows. “I hope not,” he says. “I just want to be judged for my talent and the portrayal of the song.” I begin to see why the BBC might have wanted Humperdinck for Eurovision; the more intriguing question is what’s in it for him? After all, while he may have faded from the public eye in this country, he still plays around 200 concerts a year. So isn’t Eurovision a risk for his street cred? “I think anything you do in life is a risk,” he says. “And it’s a risk I’m going to enjoy taking and that’s that.”

They would be crusty, over large knickers with Tena pads attached, Engelbert.
