Eurovision 2016 to bring back Terry Wogan as hologram

Eurovision 2016 is set to kick off this Saturday, in Stockholm, Sweden, but the organisers have special plans for the opening ceremony. The erstwhile Sir Terry Wogan, stalwart BBC presenter and British Eurovision staple who sadly died earlier this year, will return to our screens in the form of a hologram. Judy Driver, organiser of this year's singing competition told us more:

"When Coachella brought back Tupac in the form of a hologram back in 2012, we knew immediately that such technology might help us make Eurovision really go off with a bang. When the news came through that Terry Wogan had sadly passed away, I knew instantly that this was the chance. We needed to be bold, brave, and get the dead Irishman back on stage as soon as possible. "

Sir Terry, or Brickhouse as he liked to be called, was well known through the Eurozone for his acerbic commentary about the Eurovision format, including the usual bloc-voting enjoyed by neighbouring nations. He particularly and zealously seemed to enjoy belittling the various presenters of the programme over the years, mocking their tastes, styles and the stunts they used to interest the audience. We asked Ms Driver whether the holographic Wogan would be any different.

"We have scoured the breadth of Belgium and Germany for our finest comedian talents in order to draw up a witty and tasteful destruction of this year's hosts. I've seen a transcripts and it's hilarious. The bit where he calls the female presenter a monkey's anal gland is laugh out loud funny. We think this is exactly what he would have wanted."

Eurovision 2016, Stockholm, is being screened live on your local Euro channel this Saturday, 14th May.
