eurovision-1A HALF-British heartthrob is in the running to become Spain’s next Eurovision contestant.

Malaga-based Mario Jefferson, whose mother is English, is one of the six remaining singers who hope to become the country’s representative at the flamboyant 2017 event.

The 26-year-old pop star, who cites his influences as Mika and Jessie J, has beaten off almost 400 other entries to make it to the final TV selection showdown, in February.
