Eurovision 2018 is here and the latest odds show a new favourite.

Ahead of the live show, Cyprus has seen its odds of winning Eurovision slashed again by bookies Ladbrokes.

The nation is now rated at just 5/4 with the bookies to find success in Lisbon this weekend, however hot on their heels is Israel who's now fancied at 11/4.

The bookies can also reveal a monumental gamble is developing on Ireland, who are as short at 6/1 to win.

Meanwhile, the UK Eurovision entry 2018 was confirmed in February and singer SuRie will be representing us this weekend.

SuRie and her song Storm, written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves, will head to Lisbon in May after being chosen in the live show.

SuRie is an actress and singer who is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest, appearing as a backing singer for Loïc Nottet in 2015 and Blanche at Eurovision 2017.

Her chances of winning are still looking slim as it’s a 100/1 shot the UK lands the spoils on Saturday evening.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Punters are convinced Cyprus will emerge victorious at Eurovision 2018, but there's still plenty of interest in Israel and Ireland causing an upset to the jolly."
