Due to the country’s ongoing war with Russia, it was decided by the BBC and the European Broadcasting Union, the UK would host the annual competition in place of Ukraine.

It is the fifth time the UK has hosted for another country and the ninth time the country will host the international singing show overall -two more than Ireland in second.
