Cloaked in a white dress, Claudia Faniello had her first rehearsal ahead of next week’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev.

Faniello will be the fourth act on stage during next Thursday’s second semi-final, where she will sing ‘Breathlessly’.

Should she finish among the top 10 of the 18 contestants on the night, she will then sing again at the final on Saturday 13 May.  

However, she is currently polling poorly and bookmakers have her as only the 16th most likely to win the semi-final out of the 18 countries involved.
