HOLLYWOOD legend Steve Guttenberg was so impressed that his co-star was running for Eurovision glory that he did his homework on the camp music contest.

HOLLYWOOD legend Steve Guttenberg was so impressed that his co-star was running for Eurovision glory that he did his homework on the camp music contest.

The Three Men and a Baby star was due to attend the live show of Your Country Needs You to support contender Mark Evans, who co-starred with him in The Churchill's pantomime that closed its run on January 18.

But the 1980s heartthrob, who played Baron Hardup in the Bromley production, had to fly back to the USA last minute due to filming commitments.

'Prince Charming' Evans, 23, said: "He knows a surprising amount about Eurovision now. He didn't at first but I educated him all about Eurovision - I talked about it all the time."

Welsh Evans found out about the auditions for the Eurovision contest, headed by musical mogul Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber while rehearsing for the panto last year.

He said: "Being in the same room as Webber was massive, the kind of thing you had to pinch yourself to make sure it was happening."

Welsh-born Evans bagged a place in the finals of the Eurovision show last Saturday and is one of just three acts fighting it out for the chance of representing their country in the contest in Moscow in May.
