A This Morning source said: “Gaby’s been in the building to meet chiefs but it’s not clear whether it’s for Fern’s job. Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson Fiona Phillips Coleen Nolan Christine Bleakley and Holly Willoughby have all been tipped as contenders to replace Fern – who will leave the show in the middle of next month.

It’s like the Grammy’s MTV Awards and American Idol rolled into one: Every year European musicians and singers compete for the coveted Eurovision Song Contest granted to the best performing act around Europe. It was this contest that catapulted ABBA to international fame with Waterloo. This year a Jewish-Christian duet will head to Eurovision to represent Israel. The two women — one a Jewish Israeli with roots in Yemen and the United States and the other an Arab Israeli Christian are hoping to sing their hearts out with a message for Middle East peace. A star in her own right — in Israel and on international stages — Achinoam "Noa" Nini was approached by the Eurovision community asking her to sing at the 2009 contest.
