Ben Adams could be representing Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest.

The 40-year-old pop star - who is best known as a member of 1990s British-Norwegian boy band A1 alongside Christian Ingebrigtsen, Paul Marazzi and Mark Read - is rumoured to be taking to the stage at the grand final of the annual competition as part of pop duo Subwoolfer, whose identities have not been disclosed to the public.

A friend of Ben told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I’ve known him for over 10 years. I spoke to him the other day and he still won’t confirm or deny if he is a member of Subwoolfer. But ... I’ve listened to the track and I could be wrong, but it certainly sounds like him!"

Since his days in the boy band, the British-born star has relocated to Oslo in Norway, where he currently lives with model fiancee Sara Skjoldnes and their eight-month-old daughter.

Subwoolfer recently performed their novelty song 'Give Them A Banana', with lyrics that allude to the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood' in the first semi-final heat.

The lyrics read: "Have I ever told you that I really like your teeth, that hairy coat of yours with nothing underneath".

However, Norwegian band Ylvis have also been rumoured to be behind the masks, but those gearing up for the grand final in Turin, Italy don't seem to have an idea who the mystery two could be.

A source said: "Most of the staff haven’t seen them without their masks, even backstage!"

TikTok star Sam Ryder is set to represent the UK with the song 'Space Man' and is the third favourite to win with odds of 11/2, with Italy second at odds of 9/2 and Ukraine are odds-on favourites at 8/15.

'The Eurovision Song Contest' starts at 8pm on BBC One on Saturday (14.05.22) and will be hosted by Graham Norton.
