At the competition, Amanda was charged with the responsibility of handing out the UK’s points to other competing countries.
Beamed onto the broadcast in front of a green screen of Tower Bridge, Amanda said cheerfully: ‘This is London calling. What a fantastic show this evening. I’m Amanda Holden.
‘I love Eurovision. The drama, the excitement and all the wildly over the top camp outfits – and that’s just me!’ she joked.
‘But now the exciting part. Our first votes are on the screen and the twelve points from the United Kingdom goes to France.’

The UK’s Eurovision 2021 hopeful was James Newman, a 35-year-old BRIT award winner.
However James, who donned a striped leather jacket as he sang his song Embers in front of the 3,500 fans at the arena, didn’t receive a single point in the competition.
Earlier this week James was given odds of just 200/1 by Betfair to win the 65th annual Eurovision Song Contest.
Instead it was the Italian band Maneskin who leaped for joy as they triumphed at the contest in the Netherlands after scooping a whopping 524 points.
On several occasions during the show, host Graham Norton became emotional as he discussed the struggle people across the world have experienced as a result of Covid-19.
Opening the show he also began to feel emotional as he told to the UK audience: ‘Finally we are here. It’s a really emotional night.
‘If I start blubbering at any time, apologies, because I am all over the place.
‘There is so much joy and celebration here that this contest is back on and we’re all here together tonight.’
