When Liverpool won the bid to become Eurovision 2023 host the city celebrated, knowing that the win would bring all kinds of new opportunities to Merseyside. However, the opportunity to have Will Ferrell come to stay is not an opportunity that we think anybody anticipated.
Speaking to Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 breakfast show this morning (November 15) the film star expressed that he’d love to watch Eurovision in Liverpool. However, as we all know already, booking a hotel in the city between May 9-13 2023 is essentially impossible at this point.
He was there to promote how new film, Spirited, but he and Zoe got onto the subject of Eurovision when they began talking about the 2020 film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, in which he played Icelandic singer Lars Erickssong.
Fancy putting him and his mother up for Eurovision? He has some requirements: ‘We need a clean, tidy room. We’ll share a room – two bunk beds that’s all we need. I know we’re kidding but my mom would love that, she’d be thrilled.’
