1981 was the year Bucks Fizz won the Eurovision Song Contest with Making Your Mind Up for the United Kingdom. They went on to have two further number one hits in the UK – Land Of Make Believe and My Camera Never Lies as well as many more hits locally and internationally.

Three of the orginal members Cheryl Baker, Jay Aston and Mike Nolan are together now and touring with Bobby McVey (former member of Sweet Dreams ESC UK 1983 – I’m Never Giving Up). However, they cannot use the name ‘Bucks Fizz’. That is now owned by former member Bobby G‘s wife Heidi Manton. There has a been a continuous legal battle over the name for many years. Bobby G and Heidi tour as their own Bucks Fizz band.

It is probably due to the legal problems that the either of the bands have not been invited to the Eurovision Song Contest 60th birthday celebrations.

Cheryl, Jay, Mike and Bobby McVey now tour as Cheryl, Mike & Jay formerly of Bucks Fizz with Bobby McVey. The band are working on a single for summer release.
