Denmark have been installed as bookies' favourites to win this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The Scandinavian nation which will be represented by Emmelie de Forest and her track Only Teardrops has been given odds of 6/4 by Paddy Power.

Ukraine and Norway are second and third favourites at 4/1 and 8/1 respectively while the woe for the UK is expected to continue with the bookies placing the country at 25/1, sandwiched in between Ireland and San Marino.

Defending champions Sweden are priced at 20/1 to retain their crown while 1998 winners Israel are a massive 100/1 to bring the event back to Tel Aviv.

Great Britain will be represented by 1980s icon Bonnie Tyler singing Believe In Me, who recently told Digital Spy that she would be "gutted" if she failed to finish in the top ten but she has not got the backing of the bookies.

A Paddy Power spokesperson said in a statement: "Sadly it looks like the UK will be left red-faced again but Eurovision remains a popular market with turnover certain to smash the six-figure mark on the night."

The 2013 Eurovision Song Contest is set to be held at the Malmo Arena in the Swedish city on May 18th.
