Will Ferrell is looking for someone to give him and his mum a spare room in Liverpool
| Last updated
Fans of Will Ferrell have been sent into a frenzy after he revealed his mum will need somewhere to stay in Liverpool for Eurovision 2023.
While this would have typically meant next year's competition would now be held in Ukraine, as a result of the ongoing conflict in the country because of the Russian invasion, the UK offered to host instead.
With Liverpool having recently been announced as the chosen city to hold the contest, Will Ferrelll - who starred in 2020 musical comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga - is keen to visit, but has been faced with a dilemma over where his mum could stay.
"She's dying to go and she's always wanted to go to Liverpool," he said.
However, when looking at where she could stay, the Elf star noted hotels are 'all booked now'.
Indeed, other Eurovision fans have struggled too, with one man having been left fuming after a flat he rented on Eurovision weekend got cancelled before reappearing online for £20k. Another fan's booking reappeared at triple the price, with no explanation as to why it was cancelled in the first place.

With Ferrell's mum's dreams set to be squashed, Ball turned to listeners to ask if anyone would be 'willing to put up with Will Ferrell and his mum in Liverpool or the Liverpool area during Eurovision'.
And as if fans of the star wouldn't already be chomping at the bit to offer their homes to him, Ferrell joked that all he and his mum 'need' is 'a room with just two bunk beds' which is 'clean' and 'tidy'.
Despite it being unlikely such a well-known star and his mum would simply pop over to a Liverpool local's house for a few nights sleep, the actor noted that his mum would actually be 'thrilled' with the idea.
Joke or not, Ferrell's fans have gone - well, feral - at the prospect - however slim - of the actor and his mother coming to stay.
One Twitter user wrote: "Flippin hec sure our guest room is free!"
"Does it need to be elf catering?" another joked.
A third decided appealing to Ryan Reynolds may help. "@VancityReynolds here, tell Will Ferrell he and his mum can stay at my house in Liverpool for the Eurovision Song Contest. I'll even give him use of my car for 3 hours a day too if he wants. Pass that on if you would be so kind. Cheers," they said.
A final wrote: "Not sure how to get in touch with him but if needed we have a spare room in whiston, Liverpool. Takes 20 mins by taxi to get to the Albert dock. Or I’m sure me or my partner will be free to drive no problem. She is also a great cook. He can stay for free of course."

Eurovision 2023 will take place in the Liverpool Arena a.k.a the M&S Bank Arena, with the semi-finals set to be held on 9 and 11 May, and the final on the 13 May.
