Love Island star Antigoni Buxton is thought to be in talks to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest next year.
According to MailOnline, the UK Cypriot singer, 26, submitted three songs to the country’s main broadcaster, and travelled to Athens to showcase her talent. It is thought her songs were well received by bosses of the channel, and is now waiting for the green light to participate in next year’ contest in Liverpool.

Antigoni 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 appeared as a bombshell in this year’s ITV2 Love Island show.
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.
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 second place.
