Eurovision 2022: Everything you need to know

It’s that time of the year again, where acts from all over the continent - and elsewhere in some cases - compete in Eurovison. The competition always gets political but this time around there’s a clear favourite that everyone can get on board with, Ukraine.

Now, the UK hasn’t got the best track record in the competition. Despite last year’s entry James Newman’s best efforts, we finished dead last and with no points. But, could this year be different? The man hoping to change our luck is none other than TikTok star Sam Ryder with ‘Space Man’.

We speak to the Evening Standard’s Jochan Embley about Eurovision politics, the competition’s rise in popularity and whether or not the UK can avoid ‘nul points’ this time around.
