Liz and Lee's dream 'Vision.

Byline: By Wales on Sunday

Swansea City striker Lee Trundle's dreams of going to Europe rested last night on his girlfriend, who was bidding to represent the UK in Eurovision.

Atomic Kitten Liz McLarnon was one of six acts vying for the chance to star in the continent's cheesiest singing comp.

On BBC1's Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up, she was up against favourite Justin Hawkins, the former frontman of glam rock band The Darkness, ex-East 17 star Brian Harvey, Top 10 hip-hop group Big Brovaz, modern day Bucks Fizz pop quartet Scooch and newcomer Cyndi, who is French.

Liz, who belted out (Don't It Make You) Happy, called on her adopted city of Swansea, where she lives with her Scouse soccer star, to back her in the public vote. Lee even went so far as appearing on the big screen before his club's Friday night league win against Chesterfield to ask fans to support 'me missus'.

The winner will go to Helsinki in May when a record 42 countries take part. Monster rockers Lordi from Finland were the surprise winners. The UK's entry Daz Sampson finished in a lowly 19th place with the song Teenage Life.
