    Their spokesperson revealed their 12 points went to Italy and it didn't seem to sit well with the audience.

    The Ted Lesso star issued a stern warning as she exclaimed: "No booing! Not in our house."

    The current top three at this point was Israel who had 46 points.

    Italy racked up 55 while Sweden were running away with it after amassing a huge 102 points.

    Prior to the show kicking off, Graham revealed what former commentator, Sir Terry Wogan, would have thought about the UK hosting the international competition.

    Typically, the winning country hosts the following year's competition, but the ongoing war in Ukraine meant the honour was passed onto the UK.

    Speaking to Daily Star and other press at a the Eurovision Song Contest hosts press conference, the TV talk show host revealed the former commenter would have been "thrilled" at the UK hosting the competition.

    He said: "I think he would have been thrilled, because bringing it home, it’s such a different atmosphere.

    “I go every year and this is my 14th and the atmosphere is always great, but the atmosphere in the Semi-Finals [this year] – I’ve never felt anything like that at another Eurovision.

    “This crowd seem so happy to be here and so ready for Eurovision. It’s sort of transformed the whole thing. It’s not just an audience waiting to see a show. They’re so keen and so invested in it.

    "I love it. It’s great.”

    The Irish star added: “I think we’re going through a golden age of Eurovision. I think the shows the past few years have been great. Really great songs.”
