Win a Union Jack cushion for your home!

Eurovision

It’s the Eurovision Song Contest this Saturday, and to help you get into the patriotic spirit of things I’m giving away a Union Jack cushion to three lucky winners!

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is guess how many points the UK will score in the contest by leaving your prediction in the comments section below this blog. The three who guess correctly – or closest – will win the prize. I’m hoping we don’t get another ‘nul points’ this year – but don’t bet against it!

Entries will close shortly after the contest starts on Saturday 23rd May at 8.30pm and the lucky winners will be announced on Tuesday 26th May. Full T&Cs can be found in the Notes section of my Facebook page. Good luck all!
