The official running order has been confirmed by the producers of Eurovision 2013.

France will kick off the marathon music competition, hosted in Sweden, which sees 26 participant nations from across Europe competing to win Eurovision 2013.

The United Kingdom is placed at number 15, just over halfway through the proceedings.

Last year the UK’s entry Engelbert Humperdinck performed first – and came 25th in the competition. He sang ‘Love Will Set You Free’
