Sam Ryder made UK Eurovision history with major award fans didn't know about

Although the UK didn’t win the contest, Sam securing the second spot for the nation was a major turn in the history of the UK’s appearances.

Especially after the 2021 entrant, James Newman was labelled as the “worst” after he was awarded zero points from both the audience and jury votes.

The country hasn’t been in the top 10 since Jade Ewen came fifth in 2009.

Speaking to the BBC after the final Sam disclosed: “This is the tip of an iceberg, the UK is going to be a force next year. It’s gonna be mad.”

The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is available on BBC iPlayer.
