Love Island’s Antigoni ‘in talks to represent Greece at Eurovision’

Love Island contestant Antigoni Buxton is thought to be in talks to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest next year.

According toMailOnline, the reality star, 26, has submitted three songs to Greece's biggest television channel, and has already travelled to Athens to showcase her singing talents.

It is thought her songs were well received by bosses of the channel, who broadcast the show each year in Greece, and is now waiting for the green light to represent the country at the 2023 edition in Liverpool.

Antigoni, who has Greek Cypriot heritage, said of her Eurovision hopes: "I'm submitting three songs but one in particular is my favourite.

"It's an up-tempo, powerful, fiery and romantic track with both Greek and English lyrics.

"Combining modern sounds and hip-hop production with Greek traditional sounds and melodies is my style."

The singer, who hails from North London, also opened up about performing in the UK.

"I'm so proud of my Greek roots and my goal as a musician is to share Greek sounds and culture with the world.

"As the Eurovision is being held in the UK where I live, it would be an honour to be able to use my platform here to shine a light on the country I'm representing."

Antigoni was one of the stand-out stars in this year's Love Island, appearing on the ITV2 show as a bombshell midway through the series.

She previously signed for Island Records when she was just 20, but later parted ways with the company to set up her own independent label, Sirena.

If Antigoni is successful in her bid to represent Greece, she'll be performing with a whole host of European stars in Liverpool, as was announced last week by host and commentator, Graham Norton.

The UK is hosting Eurovision on behalf of 2022 winners Ukraine, whose act Kalush Orchestra triumphed in May, with the UK's entrant Sam Ryder finishing in an expressive second place.

Following the announcement the contest would be travelling to Merseyside, BBC director-general Tim Davie wrote: "Congratulations to Liverpool. They will be an amazing host for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.

"Liverpool is such an exciting, warm and vibrant city. It's the undisputed capital of pop music and is celebrating the 65th anniversary of its twinning with the Ukrainian city of Odesa.

"I know the people of Liverpool will welcome Europe, and the rest of the world, with open arms, and in partnership we will create something truly special."
