Eurovision's Spanish entrant has admitted that it would be best for the country if she didn't win the competition.

Pastora Soler acknowledged the fact that Spain would financially struggle to host next year's Eurovision should the country triumph.

"If we won, I think it would be impossible to stage the next edition because it costs so much money," Soler told ABC Punto Radio.

The AFP news agency quotes the 33-year-old as stating: "I think it is not the moment, neither for Spain nor for the Spanish public, to win Eurovision."

Meanwhile, directors from broadcaster TVE sent a joke message to Soler, saying: "Please, don't win!"

The Eurovision Song Contest final will be staged on Saturday, May 26.
