With Australia set to participate in this year's Eurovision Song Contest for the first time, bookmakers have listed pop stars such as Sia and Iggy Azalea as among the favourites to represent their home country in the 2015 outing.

It was recently announced that Australia were given a one-off invitation for the contest's 60th edition, being automatically fast-tracked to the final.

Now, as The Line Of Best Fit point out, bookies William Hill have named the likes of Sia and Iggy Azalea, as well as Chet Faker, 5 Seconds Of Summer and Keith Urban, as among those most likely to take part for Australia.

The likes of AC/DC and Kylie Minogue, however, are deemed less likely, each given a 100/1 chance of entering.

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place on May 23 in Austria, following the country's 2014 win with Conchita Wurst.

Meanwhile, Papa John's has punished the pizza delivery guy that Iggy Azalea alleged had given out her personal phone number.

Taking to Twitter on Monday (February 8), the rapper and singer stated that the company had previously been her "favorite", but described an incident in which a driver is thought to have given Azalea's number to their "family members".

Papa John's has now said that the delivery driver in question has been punished. "Privacy of our customers and employees is extremely important to us," a spokesman for the company told the Hollywood Reporter. "Papa John's has taken appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the employee involved. We are reaching out directly to Ms Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right."
