Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst is tipped to appear on the next series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' after winning fans around Europe in the singing competition
Conchita Wurst is tipped to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The Eurovision Song Contest winner, who has become an overnight star following her victory in the singing competition on Saturday (10.05.14), could be in line for a spot on the next series of the Channel 5 reality show.
The bearded drag queen made headlines as she sealed a Eurovision victory for Austria, and it now looks as though she may join the likes of 'Benefits Street' star White Dee in the famous reality TV house.
A spokesperson for betting form Ladbrokes said: "The odds firmly suggest we'll be seeing more of Conchita and it looks like she'll be sexing up the next series. Her arrival in the house is sure to see ratings rocket."
The flamboyant star has received criticism from conservative politicians in European countries such as Russia - known for its anti-gay propaganda law - with one branding her Eurovision victory "the end of Europe".
Conchita, who sang 'Rise Like a Phoenix', dedicated her victory to equal rights.
She said: "This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. We are unity and we are unstoppable.
"I share the opinion that this was not a victory just for me but for the people who believe in a future that works without discrimination and is based on tolerance and respect. This transcends borders."
