Here are the funniest tweets from Eurovision night
The contest is always good material for a joke.
We don’t tend to take the Eurovision Song Contest terribly seriously here in the UK, thanks to our minimal chances of winning most years.
However, the annual event provides plenty of fuel for a British sense of humour.
Following the competition’s twists and turns via social media was every bit as entertaining as the actual TV coverage – here’s a round-up of our favourite posts.

Everyone was a bit confused by the random Australian man being interviewed for his views on the competition.
Everyone’s favourite part is the voting announcers and the Norway-calling team seemed rather familiar.
