Alex Larke, from WGC, and Electro Velvet partner Bianca Nicholas scored just five points for their electro-swing track Still In Love With You in the grand final, as Sweden took the title for a sixth time.

Swedish favourite Måns Zelmerlöw came out on top with 365 points, ahead of Russia’s Polina Gagarina, with Italy third.

Måns wowed the audience in the Wiener Stadthalle with his song Heroes at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest.

But UK duo Alex and former The Voice contestant Bianca totalled just five points – winning three from San Marino and one apiece from Ireland and Malta.

They still beat the French, while the Austrian and German entries both finished with ‘nul points’.
