The Eurovision 2017 results are in but where did the UK entry finish tonight?

Former X Factor singer Lucie Jones represented the UK with her beautiful song Never Give Up On You, which was co-written by 2009 winner Emmelie de Forest.

She finished in 15th spot tonight with 111 points after the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, hosted by Oleksandr Skichko, Volodymyr Ostapchuk, and Timur Miroshnychenko.

Lucie had a total of 99 points from the juries of the 42 countries involved, but just 12 points from viewers across Europe (and Australia), leaving her on the second half of the leaderboard.

However it was a much better result than last year, where we finished 24th, and in fact our best result since 2011 when Blue cracked the Top 10.

Highs included 12 points from the jury of Australia whereas lows saw no points from our neighbours Ireland.

The winner of the competition was Portugal, who scored 382 points from juries and 376 points from viewers, including 8 from the UK.

Although our 12 points from viewers went to runners up Bulgaria.

We reckon Lucie will be happy with the outcome, admitting ahead of Saturday's show: "I just don't want to come last, really.

"If we get no points I'll be disappointed, but anything else is going to be a win."

She told The Daily Telegraph: "All I've got to do is not go on and fall flat on my face, and hit a bum note."

The madness that is the Eurovision Song Contest will return next year, live from Portugal.
