As if to add to the UK’s Europe-related woes, Michael Rice finished bottom in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The event was won for the first time since 1975 by the Netherlands, with Duncan Laurence accumulating 492 points for his song, Arcade. Italy finished in second place and Russia in third.
The Contest also featured a performance by Madonna which kinder critics have referred to as ‘flat’.
Twenty-one-year-old Rice represented the UK with his song Bigger Than Us, but ended up with a total of only 16 points.
Commenting on the result, our man in Tel Aviv, Dean Asker, said: "Netherlands was a deserving winner - a modern, emotional ballad. I'm delighted the Netherlands has won after 44 years."
